The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall travelled over the SVR in the Royal Train today - for a news link try:

The loco was 6024, carrying the traditional four headlamps and a Prince of Wales' feathered headboard.

Good publicity at a time when the line is still getting back on its feet.

Good for ol' big ears!

nice little clip, now if he could open that wallet of his and share some of his cash, I bet we all could come up with several very good causes starting with 60134!

I have to agree - however our moderator (60134) probably isn't yet in need of restoration. I mean Foxhunter was scrapped in the 60's


Mind you I like the idea of re-opening the Princetown branch.

Thanks for that Brit.... I don't think scrapping any A1 is a laughing matter!


It was tragic that St. Mungo was scrapped at Drapers, the same yard that went on to preserve yet another Black 5!!


Mmmm... the thought of an NG16 Garratt storming the reverse curves on its way to the top of Dartmoor does appeal - a new project for the Ffestiniog when they finished the WHR?
