    WOW – I can’t believe the number of overseas visitors to the site shown on the graphic at the bottom of the home page.
    Thailand, Brazil and Mexico, did we ever export railway engines to those counties I wonder, or perhaps its expats living out there, and where is PT?

    Manchester United have recently spent many millions of pounds buying players for their football team, perhaps they could spare the odd £1m to donate to the project!

    I think the unlocated slide-show shot of 61662 in the shallow cutting must have been taken on the GC line. It is so typical. The scene may have changed form that time, to the time I was a perpetual inhabitant of stretches of the line, so I can’t say for certain if I was ever there or not. So, can anyone positively identify the location?

    Can some knowledgeable person closely associated with the project please confirm whether cab side-windows for the new build came from B1 No. 61212 or No. 61121 (or a combination of both – or something else)?
    Very much appreciated.

      Hi Bengt, sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Yes, I can confirm that the four LNER cab side windows we have for No. 61662 came from B1 No. 61212. I collected them from the scrapyard at Doncaster myself and that number was painted on them. At the moment only the left side pair have been restored, the others are in my garage awaiting glazing !

        By the way, B1 No. 61212 was built by North British in Glasgow in 1947 so the window frames are very appropriate for us !
