    Unfortunately I missed the whole weekend due to Covid but hope to see Cheltenham again before she comes off

    I have to say that the Wagon Group's freight train at the weekend was simply amazing. After watching 53808 powering the goods up Medstead bank it reminded me of when I was a small lad in the early 60s watching similar trains at my local station of Midsomer Norton.

    Many thanks to the group for their hard work and dedication. <BJ>

    While I must admit this wasn't as good as riding the Brake Van behind the 7F, it was still good to get one final ride behind Cheltenham as it climbed to Meadstead from Alton:

    Thank you will edit my caption! I’ve obviously googled the wrong crane!! I enjoyed watching the demonstration for 20 minutes or so on Sunday.

    The numbers were better on ivat as was at modsomer Norton they look to close together and not accurate. I hope they keep the new numbers
