Foremarke Hall has been beautifully turned out in lined BR green, with the late crest on the tender.

The availability of eight locos gives us some options to run interesting combinations of double headers. The plan is to run 7812, Erlestoke Manor double headed at different times with 7820, Dinmore Manor and 7903, Foremarke Hall. The timetable on the website now has the loco allocations for each day.

I can now reveal that the plan is to run 2807 as 2808 on Saturday 28th May only, to commemorate the record breaking 2012 ton train hauled by 2808 in 1906. On the other two days, she will run as herself, 2807.
As a taster of what is to come, I received this photo from Mark Young nearly managing to squeeze in all the assembled locos, with this view taken from the top of the newly erected parachute tank.
