    A bit of dirt all adds to the effect - now we need an oval scorched effect on the bottom of the smokebox door!

    A couple of human interest ones from yesterday. The lads in the white van drove up in a hurry and leapt onto the roof of their van to see 31806 being watered at P&S!

    I don’t think anyone ‘demanded’ they be refitted, but surely something that helps those that operate it a bit more visibility can’t be a bad thing surely?

    I don't think they serve any useful purpose on the 2-6-0s but in BR livery they should be there.

    Just watching a video of 31806 on YouTube and they appear to be doing their job. There was obviously a reason why they were added.
    The original question about what was on them didn’t deserve the slightly sarky response that was post #99

    Matt McManus.
    Possibly Dave was on Footplate Inspector/Route Conductor duty.
    Due to the length of day I wonder if there was a second crew to get 31806 back to Swanage?

    Does 31806 have a Stanier 'Caledonian' hooter?.

    Going back to last Sunday's trips around Portsmouth, here are some shots of 61306 & 31806 taken at Fareham, Netley and Botley:

    I see 60103 made it to Edinburgh yesterday just four minutes late, albeit on a generous schedule. First Fife Circle running to time today so whatever the problem was last Saturday, it doesn't seem to have affected her performance so far this week.

    Not bad since she is supposed to be, quoting an 'expert' scruffy, rods knocking, regulator blowing through. :rolleyes:
