SENA 15 has left Toddington after being sold to a new owner. We are sorry to see the loco leave, it was a popular attraction on our railway and performed well in operation.
CHAKA entered service at the June 'Thomas' weekend, along with SENA 15, and worked well. After being used for a private visit in early July, CHAKA was in charge of train services for the Bus Rally day on 12 July. It is now receiving some further maintenance.
BRYNEGLWYS, our Simplex diesel has undergone a repaint, it now looks very smart and is ready for service. Its first public duties are scheduled for the GWSR Diesel Gala, along with the Hunslet diesel. Steam will be represented by Brigadelok 1091 on the Saturday and Sunday of the diesel gala. All subject to availability.
