Kent & East Sussex Railway for August?

Unfortunately 29 was not avaliable to run a special during her 100th year as she is still at Ian Riley's workshops in Bury undergoing a partial bottom end overhaul. This is very dissapointing for all involved as we wanted to celerbrate her 100th birthday in style.

29 will also miss the NYMR's Gresley 100 gala, her duties are being undertaken by Bagnal 0-6-0ST Cranford No.2 kindley loaned to the NYMR by the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway. If all goes to plan No29 will travel to Kent for operation during August. This will be the furthest south she has traveled in her 101 years! The loan is in return for the loan of KESR Terrier 23678 during October 2003.

As soon as we have further information from Bury or details of 29's movements back to the NYMR (or KESR) we will publish them here.
