Having sat on a trailer at Heanor, Langley Mill since its failed attempt to get to Leicester mid November 27059 (UKRS) has now been transported to Barrow Hill. There is a *likelihood* that the plan is now to transfer 27059 to Leicester by rail from Barrow Hill when 58016 (UKRS) is moved to Leicester.

Cabs from 86247 into preservation at Bridgend
The cabs from 86247 have been delivered to the South Wales Loco Cab Preservation Group at their yard in Bridgend. The group now own thirteen locomotive cabs. "Some are in a very poor state but are being stored pending attention. The cabs have to be purchased as and when they become available. Facilities are being set up in the yard in preparation for continuing the renovation process. The long term aim is to open a railway interest centre in South Wales which will include the collection of cabs."

Farewell to Arms

Produced with the full co-operation of Network Rail, this latest Locomaster DVD details the operation of the ten signal boxes between Scunthorpe and Cleethorpes that are due to close shortly before Christmas. The boxes along the 60-mile route are - Appleby, Elsham, Wrawby Junction, Barnetby East,
Brocklesby Junction, Ulceby, Roxton, Stallingborough (including the original box with the gate wheel and semaphores), Marsh Junction and Pasture Street. And there's a few more for good measure - Immingham Reception (the last electrically-powered box with slide levers), Immingham West and the original box at Immingham East which closed in 2012. There's also a quick look at the little-used Grimsby Light Railway.

In this documentary you will see inside each and every box in the area. In the manual boxes, the Signallers are seen working the levers and block instruments in much the same way as more than a century ago in Victorian times. At the more complex boxes such as Barnetby East and Wrawby Junction,
the Signallers explain the local layout and signalling operation. There are also plenty of unique and previously unseen views of the numerous passing passenger and freight trains that are usually only seen by the signalling staff.

If you have ever stood on Barnetby station and wondered how Barnetby and Wrawby Junction signal boxes operate, then wonder no more. It's all in this DVD!

Syphon Salute - 50 Years of Class 37s

The Class 37 Locomotive Group's new book, the Syphon Salute, 50 Years of Class 37s
