    i'm ASSUMING the DBS loco is a 60 unless they're gonna name a shed, which of course they might, also in one of the mags recently they were putting forward the idea that if it was ready DRS may be sending a 88, hopefully as well this year the air braked set wont be load 4 as it was a bit of a scrum last year. Again though this year the SVR seam to be taking the light away from the Swanage which seam's on paper at least to be almost half hearted in comparison to galas of the past, if only the WSR had the confidence to attempt this sort of event

    More importantly, as it's been such a late confirmation, I doubt there's time to put up the catenary at Bridgnorth.

    Heard over the weekend the 2 resident 20's have been told they're not allowed to take part in this years event. What an absolutely shocking way to be treated.

    Why would you hire in 20s when there are two resident there?

    'In addition to' being the relevant point, though...
