    No 61662's identity was re-established today ! Many thanks to Mick Strickson of Trackside Limited for very kindly donating the BR Crest and Numerals and to Nick Newport for fitting them.

    There is plenty more to do yet but the Tender is now looking much healthier than it did when it first arrived at the Mizens Railway.

    If you would like to contribute to the re-building of this locomotive, please give us a call or email, we would be glad to hear from you.

    Thanks once again for your donations and support. 

    Best Regards, Ken, Project Leader.
