    So it says on the T.S.R. Report that they are in early stages of planning to leasehold or buy the entire N.R. branch from madley jct to buildwas after they reach doseley and lightmoor and put a bridge in place over a road (and all this is going to take more fundraising i guess) to complete phase 3 to ironbridge, so does this mean when ironbridge power station comes down apparently is some of the rubble and scrap going out by rail it would make sense to do it that way so it increases the chanches of the N.R. retaining the existing tracks besides the T.S.R. also wanting the track for future projects. What is the timescale then for the entire project to be completed in if all these ambitious plans go ahead cos phase 1 to lawley bank looks to be well under way already.

    Popped down to Horsehay yesterday and was pleased to see Peckett No 1967 Merlin/Myrddin back in steam after (I think) a retube. Probably the angle of my photograph, but Merlin looks about half the height of the coach!
