Also some videos on the EMF facebook page of the goods being shunted at Bridgnorth.

It also was not a footplate experience, but a private charter in the FE path.

Solid progress is being made with the "new" tender project for 7802.

See here for photos of the recently delivered mainframes with assembled dragboxes and other components:

Meanwhile arrangements are being made for 7812's forthcoming overhaul.

Those contributing to the "Final Mile" appeal also get entered into a draw for a valuable 7mm scale model of 4507 and other worthwhile prizes. Details here:

Steam Railway magazine reports:

Erlestoke Manor is expected to move to Tyseley Locomotive Works for contract overhaul; although the majority of the funding has been covered, the owning group Erlestoke Manor Fund still needs to raise 35,000 to cover the cost of the overhaul and ensure No. 7812 returns to steam in 2020.
