    Apparently the class 107 DMUs and support coaches are set to leave the Tanat Valley in the next few weeks, destination currently unknown. No mention of the box van that was part of the sale.

    All will be replaced by... another Pacer.

    Apparently the ex-Bletchley Tube wagon has moved to the Aln Valley Railway. Not sure what the plans for it there are.

    To be fair - the final sentence of their report does state "The Pullman car has, however, left the Locomotive Storage site today (June 21), and returned to Swanage."
    It was withdrawn from service due to COVID restrictions effectively prohibiting it's use.
    Now those restrictions are no longer in force Car 14 has been returned to Swanage (as a return load) for some [hopefully] fairly minor works before re-entering passenger service.

    Not a move, but a change of ownership: Pullman car Aquila, which has been at the Bluebell Railway since the middle of 2021, has been sold by it's former owner to the Bluebell Railway Trust.
