Those who have been following the saga of fabricated steam locomotive disposals will I am sure be are of the What Really Happened to Steam project http://www.whatreallyhappenedtosteam.co.uk/ Their team is also working closely with us regarding the topic of fabricated and incorrectly published Diesel locomotives. They now include a page on their website http://www.whatreallyhappenedtosteam.co ... posals.htm detailing those we are between us confident are incorrect and for which the truth has been unearthed. This is linked to through to http://www.rcts.org.uk/features/diesels/ were of course more details can be found.

Could I appeal again for anyone who has sightings of diesel locomotives after withdrawal that suggest the disposal is not as previously published to make contact.

D2289 - Its back!!

On 13th June D2289 was craned off the low loader that had brought it from Italy at the Rowsley base of the Heritage Shunters Trust. Until the discovery of 03156 a few years ago it was thought that this was the only surviving ex BR shunter of those exported in the 1970s.

It is currently not on public view at its new home but those who are keen to 'cop' it should be able to do so very soon.
