    Can't believe this is now 5 years old! [​IMG] Still really proud of it! [​IMG] I think I've improved vastly since this, and yet my "future thinking" and the direction I want to take the SVR, (and the heritage railway world) is still very present in all my creations since this. Be unique, be professional, beyond imagination. Lets plan that next year will be full of more wonderful creations. Thanks again for the support over these years! [​IMG]

    Was that 34053’s whistle at the end? I do find it interesting it’s now at the other SVR!

    Like this at Chessington South. (Taken a few years back, during relaying.) Very old-fashioned bonding, I notice.

    A really good read as always . Impressed with Helen's notes and a salutory lesson for certain other GM's in terms of engaging supporters and volunteers

    I have to say that I do like that she seems to lead from the front, but saying that the SVR seems to have quite a few ‘Generals‘ that are quite happy to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in with the ‘lower ranks’

    The SVR continues to add videos to its YouTube channel, the latest being working at height and its new mobile elevated working platform, and one as part of the education part of the Falling Sands Viaduct renovation (and its NHLF grant)

    Nothing is going on with 7325. She is still in storage awaiting her turn in Bridgnorth.
