Also some videos on the EMF facebook page of the goods being shunted at Bridgnorth.

It also was not a footplate experience, but a private charter in the FE path.

Solid progress is being made with the "new" tender project for 7802.

See here for photos of the recently delivered mainframes with assembled dragboxes and other components:

Meanwhile arrangements are being made for 7812's forthcoming overhaul.

Those contributing to the "Final Mile" appeal also get entered into a draw for a valuable 7mm scale model of 4507 and other worthwhile prizes. Details here:

Steam Railway magazine reports:

Erlestoke Manor is expected to move to Tyseley Locomotive Works for contract overhaul; although the majority of the funding has been covered, the owning group Erlestoke Manor Fund still needs to raise 35,000 to cover the cost of the overhaul and ensure No. 7812 returns to steam in 2020.

The "Final Mile" appeal is progressing well but more support will still be very welcome. Now that we are in the peak railway modelling season don't forget to check out the quality first prize by visiting the funds website.

Arrangements are bring made for 7812 to depart by road for Tyseley during the first week of January 2018 and for work on the overhaul to commence straight away on arrival.

Great to see the Erlestoke Manor Fund really wasting no time at all!

It was pointed out to me in one of my videos from yesterday that 7802 is now running with a small tender, off 7812 no doubt.

https://youtu.be/wub9CMLf_FQ

7802 appears at about 5min 25sec. The beginning part of the video does show it but very distant.
