08888 moved today, under its own steam. Since it emerged from the shed in early September a big green tank has been erected which partly blocked off the view of it from the station. This afternoon (Mon 5th) it was used to shunt the breakdown crane out the north end of the shed and put it back inside on the adjacent road. Then it parked outside the shed again, but as a result of this move it's now on the shed road further from the station.

Also this afternoon a couple of blokes were looking o ...

Visited 3 October following the match against the well supported Hereford FC.
As a consequence the quarry car park to the west of the level crossing was available for use by visiting supporters and permitted a good view of No 59 RR 10273 stabled at SK 44641291.

At about 5 pm No 159 TH 297V crossed the road at the end of shift and stabled at SK 44621288. Reasonable photos possible of the working loco possible in the exchange sidings but no evidence of any stabled main line locos. The A 5111 i ...

On Easter Saturday as I passed through I noticed the two shunters at Snailwell were stabled parallel to the main line.
The smaller loco is now in very faded green livery and a lot of graffiti. The cab doors were open and rain was getting in.  Sad
The light yellow & blue on the larger loco was also faded, but not so much. This loco also sported graffiti, but not so much.

On the other side of Ely the Potter Group appeared closed for the holiday period. No ...
Had a look at Long Marston today from the railway bridge a purple DLO was visible near the open front of the nissen type hut.
Could someone please confirm whether this is 01547

Many thanks Derek
08871 looking fab. Just had its decals fitted and now carries H074 on its solebar.

Does anyone know if 08484 is still at Wishaw I have seen reports that it has headed off North to Shildon, I was hoping that it may still be in the Midlands.


Of the few remaining shunters I need three are on the North Norfolk Railway.  According to their web site D2280 is in the Carriage Shed at Holt and not viewable from a public place.  Is there a way to see this loco at say a gala or special event or something similar?
Thanks in anticipation
Very Happy
