Is there anything happening?

Well, yes there is, but not too much that is readily visible!  Stuart has been carrying out some repairs to the roof of the Villa and there has been some restoration some of the smaller componentry.  On the fundraising front we have had a good year and are on our way to paying for a cylinder block, or at least the rough casting!  The wheel sets have been returned from the South Devon Railway and are now in "ready to run" condition (well, very nearly!).  there has been plenty of discussion on the restoration of various parts of the loco, including the frames.  It now looks likely that new frames will be the way to go.  Possibly no more expensive than repairing the existing frames and probably easier when it comes to the restoration.  The costs and practicalities will need to be finalised before we make the final decision.

I am about to put together a "review of the year and projection for the forthcoming year" together which will be published here first.  I am hoping to get this done by the end of January.
