Web admin note: The poster has created a new topic on 813 and so the existing discussion on GWR 0-6-0ST 813: 2014 onwards' has been renamed and locked to avoid confusion. [June 2018]. The previous storyline, now time span re-titled to, 2014 to 2017 can be found on https://forum.svr-online.org.uk/viewtopic.php?t=3188

Hello,
The locomotive spent a few weeks holiday on The Bluebell Railway.
The locomotive was the guest for their Branch Line weekend 18 - 20 May 2018. She was also steamed the following weekend as 'Tornado' was not feeling very well. Much praise from the crews involved and the Ops Dept.

813 is now on The Epping & Ongar Railway for the Steam Gala 8 - 10 June 2018.

Not to certain where she will be heading next, I think 'Up North'.
A new page will be uploaded this afternoon with some photographs of her on The Bluebell Railway and Epping & Ongar Railway.

Hello,
813 has been returned to Bridgnorth for an examination and boiler wash out. I think this might have already happened!

She is then off to The East Lancs Railway until the end of August.

GWR 813 next moved to The Elsecar Railway for an WW1 Event 'Home From The Front' in late October.

Info here:

https://www.elsecarrailway.co.uk/index.php/what-s-on/events-timetable

and here:

http://www.homefromthefront.co.uk/


The event included North Eastern Railway Auto Trailer 3453.
After testing the loco plus coach, The Railway deicide that due to the tight curves on the Railway, they would not use 813 on this extended service without damaging the locomotive.

The locomotives next port of call is the Spa Valley Railway. The engine will be used for their Christmas and New Year services. The loco will be arriving at The Spa Valley Railway late November.

Some photos of the loco at The Battlefield Line and Elsecar Railway can be found here:
