A bit of luck with the weather and we have managed to get a coat of top coat on the areas that have received attention this year - just in time for the gala.

There is still more to do - a second coat of top coat and some varnish, but it does look much better again.

Farmers have their harvest each autumn - we have top coat!

The embargo on photos of 'Lyn' in North Devon seems to have been lifted, so here are a couple of views we particularly enjoyed taking on Monday, 11th September, when we tracked and filmed the brand new loco on its journey from the Alan Keef premises near Ross-on-Wye to its new home at Woody Bay on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.
With loading accomplished, No 762 was taken slowly down to the station, and at dusk sat for a few moments in the up platform. The train of original stock was also on hand, so it isn't difficult to imagine how glorious the combination of 'Lyn' and four L& B coaches will look for the gala on 30/9 and 1/10. See you in North Devon!

Take a look at the images of our unpainted pre-production sample dynamometer car.

Final tweaks are been made but I'm sure most would agree it is coming along nicely!

The next stage will be a painted livery sample which is due shortly.

Huge amount pre-sold so we advise pre-ordering to secure yours.

Today's free archive clip is now up on the unseensteam.co.uk homepage!

All Change at Aberystwyth - 1967 (part 1)

50 years ago everything was changing on British Railways, even in the outbacks such as Aberystwyth where steam had ceased on the standard gauge but was to continue on the narrow gauge Vale of Rheidol line. These two things would interact as the standard gauge line to the south at Carmarthan had closed altogether thus allowing BR to "rationalise' the narrow gauge line and give it a direct route out of the old Carmarthan line platforms. Here we see the old exchange line between the two, now redundant, and the VoR's line which skirted to the south around the standard gauge complex and where a VoR train seems to appear out of someone's garden as it makes its way to its own soon-to-be removed terminus.

I had the pleasure of a day with David Shepherd a few years ago snapping his lovely TT gauge layout housed in the loft of his Elizabethan barn. The true lovely chap and great host. I had plans to visit him again soon, sadly that will never happen. Let's celebrate what a great life - to you David! #davidshepherd #obituary ... See MoreSee Less

With a month and a bit to go until the end of our Bridgnorth Development fundraising share offer, work on the new refreshment room continues apace!

Detailed work on the arches above the windows is taking place, with 'dry runs' being undertaken before bricks are mortared in.
Brick and block-laying has continued, with brick saws being kept extremely busy!

There are just a few more weeks left for us to raise £1 million! Our share offer campaign ends on October 31st and we would dearly love to reach our £2.5 million target, enabling us to fulfill all our exciting plans to transform Bridgnorth Station.

If you can help us by purchasing shares, please see www.svr.co.uk/shareoffer or call 01562 757900 (option 2).

Volunteers from the Great Western (SVR) Association charity's current project is 1928-built GWR coach no. 6045, patiently waiting for restoration since 1972! 6045 is a 'Composite', carrying both first- and third-class passengers.

Two images from Gareth J Price show the work in hand. New glass for all 16 quarterlights has now been installed as well as the internal frames behind them. In addition, all of the external components have been fitted to the roof - the shell ventilators, destination board brackets and long handles. The roof has been primed.

You can read more on their website at www.gw-svr-a.org.uk/6045-appeal.html
