Another 'Engineer' Day out
As the Mrs was at work I decided to venture back to the Swindon and Cricklade Railway for the two 03's and the 08. Having been unlucky in the past, as it was a 'gala' day I was bound to be successful. I had a chat with a volunteer that advised the depot should be open but worst case the steam loco driver did have a key. I duly had a chat on the footplate of 4247, before purchasing my ticket and taking a trip to Taw Valley Halt, before heading back to Hayes Knoll. D2022 is outside before Hayes Kn ...
Preserved shunters
It's been mentioned on other forums, that the sale of 03179 has gone through. Its plaque and nameplates have apparently been removed at Hornsey. Can't find any other details though.
St Philips Marsh Open Day - 2 May 2016
The two shunters were seen at today's open day, looking very smart

08822 was in Intercity swallow livery, and was named "Dave Mills" on Saturday 30th April

08663 was in BR Blue, and named "St Silas" on the 11th April.

"Muffin" was also there, a NITEQ 2000E "Mule" shunting thing.

Eastleigh & Southampton
I was on UKR's Pines Express yesterday and we had an hour at Eastleigh.
No shunters in the station area, so I ran round to Campbell Road and no shunters in sight there either. A local enthusiast informed me "They're all kept inside at weekends.
When our train moved off towards Soton 01508 appeared at the entrance to the works.
Apologies for lack of photo. The green livery was clean and the number on the side appeared to be in gold rather than black or white.
Industrial shunter on A38
Saw a shunter on the back of a low loader travelling north on the A38 near Fradley on 21st. It was a military green colour and i think the number was 993. Looked brand new or refurbished. Anyone have info? Cheers.
MoD 01/5s
Looks like 01546 has turned up at the East Kent Railway today.

This is parked up towards the side of the shed appearing to be positioned for road transport away (to Eastleigh?).

Crewe and East Midlands 17th April 2016
Myself and Joe got up early on a Sunday...Matt was in Corfu.. and had a jaunt around the area....main purpose was to see all eight EMT 43's sets.. as seven pass through L'boro between 16.25pm and 18.02pm on a Sunday..with the 8th going north through the East Midlands between 2.15pm - 2.30pm and then off to Neville Hill.

Thought we'd also do some Depot bashing so did Crewe/Longport//Burton/Derby/Toton/Loughborough and Leicester as well and all of the shunter related photos are on our Flickr ac ...
