    Looking forward to what should be a good event! Being fairly local to Bressingham, I've seen Gwynedd there many times so it'll be nice to see her running in some different surroundings.

    Some pics of what's going on in the workshops would be just as interesting! (Hint!)

    Yep, Tamar HE 3756/1952 and LBSCR 672 Fenchurch. I think the frames outdoors are from WD 75118 Wheldale, but open to correction.

    Possibly the next restoration project? Seaforth, HE 1026/1910, recently repatriated from Australia (one of the damper areas judging by the rust!). Also visible is Handyman, HC 573/1900, formerly at the NRM.
