    Me too. I'm on The Explorer on Saturday and am secretly hoping for some Braunton haulage. But worst case scenario at least I'll probably be able to see her in Bridgnorth yard.

    A mixed day for ourselves yesterday, Braunton seemed OK on the outbound trip, the loco didn't sound like she was to pushed too hard with her substantial load although all witnessed from the lineside on very gentle gradients. A good showing from Taw Valley up Eardington Bank and looking resplendent with the Golden Arrow attire. Enjoy =)

    Two of my shots at Eardington Bank yesterday. Shame about Braunton's problem, hope to see her working on the valley another time.

    God knows how many times I’ve passed under that Bob, never knew it was part of the Elan Valley network.

    Was on SVR today. Braunton was in Bridgnorth yard, out of steam, tucked in between a shunter and the Flying Pig.
