    That's just payback for getting a Standard Tank out at a Diesel Gala! :)

    A U-Boat, M7 and T9 all in BR Black would look smashing together.

    It was unloaded this morning and brought straight back to Swanage, and we are doing our best; I'm afraid that is as much as I can say today. I will try to keep everyone as informed as possible.

    Yes, they will; it is good to be able to confirm that, thanks to a great deal of help from the Mid Hants Railway, we have been able to hire 31806 for our Spring Gala. We have to express our sincere thanks to the MHR for their assistance, they really have been a great help.

    That means that, if we are able to repair 34070 in time, the final line up will be 30053, 30120, 31806, 34028 and 34070. For fans of the Southern Region of BR, does it get much better...?!

    Update on Manston; its is going back together as I type, and has this evening been lit up to start warming it through. I will be in a position to give a further update around lunchtime tomorrow.
