A new gallery for the next 3 months photos. Hottest day of the year so far at 35C 1.7.2015 not auspicious for steam photos but smoke was to be seen as no.22 came to the boil on shed, and the boiler of 34081 was prepared for an out-of-frames steam test which it passed. No.1800 Thomas will soon get its wheels. Looking forward to the arrivals of the visitors. 25.7.2015 A little time spent with the Wagon Group at work, Tim Hobman, Paul Foxwell, and Phil Halstead. They do a tremendous job and can get goods vehicles ready for running at comparatively small cost. They can always do with more help. Reasonable DIY skills useful. In the 1990s NVR used to run recreated express freight trains with 16 box vans, a sight regularly seen on the ECML in steam days often with an A4 in charge. Such a train will attract regular photo charters.
