Our website deemed OK to me this afternoon, although I understand that there were problems with our domain ( is that the right word?) for a short while.

By the way, we still have paintings, books, brake van models and super detailed Hinton Manor models available towards raising funds for the old girl (Tranters Babbie)

7819 tucked up in the warm & in deep slumber at Swindon has been decorated for its final Christmas in the Designer Outlet Centre.

EDIT: I had heard this but Kev Cronin has confirmed it on the public group in FB, and he's a reliable source! I should treat it as unofficial though.

7819 is due into the works in 2018 to commence its overhaul. She will be in the Engine House on display from the return date in late 2016 till the overhaul start date.

Since Hinton Manor is this week's featured article on the SVR Wiki, is any update on a likely return from Swindon?

Kev Cronin this week: "Plans are under way to have the loco returned to SVR next year from Swindon with a start of its overhaul hopefully soon after in 2018/2019. "

That sounds very positive. Good news indeed!
