    What is happening at Corfe Castle? It looks like the end of a scaffolding pole protruding into the webcam's field of view (left hand bottom).

    As noted above the signalbox is getting a repaint during the shut-down, if I remember tomorrow I'll take a picture, I'm due to assist in putting the rolling stock back in the goods shed road after the winter maintenance work has been completed.

    Could a mod change the title of the thread seeing as details are now out in public? (and maybe move it to Events?)

    Is it not worth having its own event page? Separate it from General discussion?

    There's already a thread in 'Galas and Events'. Admittedly, a very short thread, but it's there.

    Railway Facebook page has just announced U-Class 31806 for the week with BB 34072 on the diners.
    34072 also on a freight set next Sat 23rd.

    I'm very excited for the arrival of 419 for the gala and the railway should be proud for securing her loan.

    Absolutely, its just a pity the M7 isnt available, that with Met No. 1 would make for an interesting comparison and line up.

    The O2 wasnt a 'looker' in the way the other 3 are until Mr McNab modified the IoW machines with the bigger bunker. Its the bunkers which give the other 3 classes a much more businesslike look
