Nice to see an old loco being restored in what may be a relatively short while.

What, under 15 years maybe?

Yes, reckless haste I know but this one really might not take geological time. The frame is off to Loughborough I gather for professional assembly. Parts for it have been procured over the years apparently and the blog implies it might run on the GWSR.

Found on the 31st Dec edition about 2/3rds down.

The first town plan. An idea that had legs.

If they apply the GRIP process, we can expect to see it running some time in the early 2090s...

Sir. Does this mean that Ann-Margret's not coming?

Please let this fall under JFDI rather than GRIP!

First train with passengers to stop at Broadway since 1960, a special for members and shareholders.

Was able to give my regards to Broadway today as a birthday treat for tomorrow by my good partner in rail related matters (many thanks to trainer). We were hauled by King Edward II and I did wonder if there were any red hot pokers left behind in the firebox. Very well loaded with coach parties.The new station and the new extension seems resplendently splendid with the Broadway station having no less than 4 fully uniformed staff on the platform. Weather was perfect, you could see for miles, and think it was one of the best return journeys I have had on the line in recent years.
