|I've noticed quite recently, that some of the photo pages have gone a bit wonky. 08428 is a prime example, to where one of the photos taken at Margam, is actually a picture of what looks like a gearbox !! This is due to the website i use for uploading the photos. Not ideal i know, and you may come across some photos that are of a sensitive nature. I'm not one to judge if you were to upload these for yourself
Over the next few weeks, the site will be updated fully and you may find o ...

|08530 was at the North terminal, in old Freightliner livery.
08531 was at the South terminal, in the new Freightliner livery.
Can you please tell me how to get to your directory for North East depots and yards to see Class 08's?

|An update of the progress of 08993, currently at Haworth. Its EWS colours have partially been covered by green primer and its engine is receiving an overhaul. No official word on what livery it'll be receiving in the near future though.

|Fictional BR numbered Shunters
|Following the thread on the queries page relating to 11104, I have compiled a list of ex industrial locos which are known to carry a BR number (and livery) - I'm sure there are many more!!!

|I too need 2051 & 2280.
From the NNR website, they do run a couple of mid-week evening "Behind The Scenes" trips in May and June. I think they give a tour of the loco and carriage sheds at Weybourne, but I don't know about the one at Holt. I will try and get on one of their tours next year and find out.
|Just to bring the news uptodate, 08670 is still in its grey primer. However, 08441 now wears a dark grey or light black colour. Whether this is more primer or going to be the top coat, i don't know.
And either in the morning or it has already happened, 08846 will be back at Derby, which i guess will see the return to Wishaw of 08683.
