Very nice pictures, thanks for sharing them!

Please send them to Bachmann to remind them that a malachite green OO Lord Nelson would sell a lot with the real one doing all the advertisement for them.

Its a pity that here in Austria there are not any locos as beautiful as this one as I like photographing them as much as railway modelling.

Dear Thomas,

There's usually plenty going on at Strasshof. Here is a picture of myself and an American visitor at Strasshof, Lower Austria

There are lots of interesting narrow gauge lines too. It's not so bad in Austria, but of course not the same as a proper SR Green Steam Loco.

I might just be tempted down to the W/S to see Lord Nelson

Lord Nelson might be running during the WSR's autumn gala on from 5th-8th October.

Not sure why it was withdrawn on Wednesday, but one of the engineers did look at the inside cylinder area at Bishop Lydeard. There are some pictures on the 'unoffical' WSR site of 850 running in last week.

the site hasn't yet listed the locomotive roster for the weekend.
It seems that 850 Lord Nelson will stay on the WSR for a little while longer, it is't ready for the main line and is going up to Bury for fitting of train warning systems.
