Which shunters are currently visible and identifiable at BH please?
For example last time I went; 01520 was parked up near the round house, but no sign of 01515; I was told it was in one of the locked buildings. I could also see a blue 08 at the end of one of the cordoned off sidings, but there were at least two blue 08s there that day.

Having spent the last 3 months in Didcot shed after its fire, this has apparently now been fixed Very Happy
West Somerset
Off to Devon next week with the Grandkids and hoping to pop into the WSR to look for two of my long lost shunters.
D2271 which is repoted as being un numbered at Minehead
D9518 in pieces at Williton
Is this still the case or can anyone update me?

Just come across this whilst doing some research. Might be a tad boring to some, but just think around 20 years ago, this train could've been 2 x 37's...imagine the noise on the gradient thumbs-up.gif

It looks like 08628 is no more. Certainly not in its position as previously and wasn't reported of being on site on Friday ( 13th ), so it's either been scrapped on site or taken to Kingsbury for disposal.
Cornwall sightings.
Monday 9th I went down to Cornwall for a track bash.
Passing OOC 08836 looked very distinctive in it's green livery.
Going by Laira, stabled near the main and appeared to have been recently repainted in a bright shade of blue was 08641. It's certainly not in the scruffy blue as on the photos page of this forum.
At Long Rock 08410 was stabled adjacent to the mainline and looked very clean. I then retraced my steps to reach Newquay where I was staying.
I read the directions for Burngullow and ...
Top down view of Yorkshire Class 02 Shunter?
