It has been a little quiet news wiser over the Christmas period, but work has been going on with work being carried out most weekends. I am hoping to get an update to pass on shortly, but until I do, I have been looking through the archives and scanning some pictures of 27 and other small locos, a few of which I will share with you now.

I am sure you would like to see 27 working as much as we do, and to help us to reach the stage of a working locomotive, we need all the help we can get! Please donate as much as you can afford, no matter how small, it all makes a difference. Or if you have items that you would like to donate for our sales stands or items suitable for auction (model railways or railwayana), we would be pleased to receive them.
