More, more & more!

WHHR locos arriveThe steady stream of arrivals of exhibits for Tracks to the Trenches has continued.
Our friends in Skegness, the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway Historic Vehicles Trust have sent a Class P Ration Wagon, which makes an interesting contrast with the similar wagon from Amberley which arrived a few weeks ago via the War and Peace show. The two Welsh Highland Heritage Railway locos – Motor Rail 264 and Baguley 760 arrived in some style. MR264 is, of course, the oldest Motor Rail in Great Britain.
Finally, and perhaps best of all, the long-awaited arrival of HC1238 – the Trust’s Very Own Steam loco – took place. This, along with the Joffre and Brigadelok – took part in a photo charter, and very good it all seemed to. Many, many Pixels were harmed during the day. Hudswell 1238 on a demo freight
Bogies galore!In other news, our genuine First world war wagon fleet continues to swell – with several large projects nearing completion. This is perhaps just as well, since the event opens on Friday!

 

One response to “More, more & more!

  1. Attended the show today (Saturday), absolutely brilliant.
    Fantastic variety with all the different locos, wagons, Tank, vehicles, model railways, recreations, the trench. In fact about the only thing missing was a vintage aircraft display.
    Had a great time, many thanks for your efforts in putting this together.
