Hi does anyone know any details of the 2 yellow shunters at the sand quarry at the top of Shap summit?

many thanks in advance

Reported on wnxx that D9523 has returned from Wansford, Nene Valley Railway to Leeming Bar, Wensleydale Railway by 15/2/2017, the date of arrival at Leeming Bar was 2/2/2017

It is indeed in Cornwall along with another UID 01, they are both painted blue and have the numbers P405D Alex being 01571 and the other being P406D Issac.
According to UK 01555 TH292V "James" was scrapped on or just before 16.02.2016.  Can anyone confirm please?


PS  Looks like 01554 TH264 "Helen" is heading your way (Chasewater Railway) Steve.

May be of interest.
Saturday 28th January saw my third visit of the month to Scunthorpe to travel on the AFRPS brake van tour (a report on the BLS tour on the 7th will follow in due course, hopefully).

A rather dull and damp morning saw a good crowd congregating on the Frodingham platform waiting the arrival of Peckett 1438/1916, which was celebrating the renewal of its boiler certificate in its centenary year, hauling three brakevans.

We set off heading for the CEW dock line (thanks to a personal request…) p ...

The two MotorRail (Simplexes) with the fictional BR (ex LNER) numbering were uplifted from the GCRN yesterday (31/1/17) - any idea where they are off to?

For the time being, this will be the last update for adding new photos, as i'll now be concentrating on updating the directions and notes section. You will notice on a few pages, that some images are not showing. Major cock-up on my part and i'll be putting this right as i work my way through the notes. Please continue to keep sending me your photos though  thumbright

Peak Rail ( Rowsley ) visit
Dates and exact details are to be confirmed, but due to a massive thanks to Andrew from the HST, we may be able to have a full guided tour around the Rowsley shed in the near future. At the moment, i'm just putting the feelers out, to find out how many are willing to come along and part with as much as you can give ( £10 + with a bit of luck )...and to put some names to faces  Razz

Refreshments will be available on the day, although you'll need to bring your own flask if you want a ho ...
AV Dawson
Wnxx notes that 08807 has been disposed of for scrap from AV Dawsons. earlier this month.  No indication as to which yard scrapped it (likely to be EMR Middlesbrough (next to M'bro Goods yard), C.J. Prosser's of Cargo Fleet or TJ Thomson of Stockton (which is running down/tracklifting, locally rumoured to be closing)

I happened to notice 08807 had gone from its usual location on 26/1/2017, but didn't report it, pending on discussing it with my contact (who I now find has disappeared off ...
