Happy New Year

Firstly, a slightly belated set of season’s greetings to both the readers of this. And now the moment you have all been waiting for – the answers to part 2 of the Quiz.

Number 9 was Hunslet 2207/1941 plinthed at Blaenau, newly restored at Boston Lodge
10 is  the vertical boiler Paddy, normally at Amerton Railway (although the picture was actually taken at Keef’s open day)
11 is the Festiniog’s diesel Criccieth Castle
12 is one of the electric power units from the Post Office Railway in London. It is English Electric Co Ltd, Dick Kerr Works 761/30 and is now at Launceston, Cornwall.
13 is  Joan KS 4404/27 at Welshpool
14 is Talyllyn –  FJ 42/1865
15 is the air pump of  the new-build steam Bagnall-inspired steam loco Joan, based at the Golden Valley Light Railway.
Finally, 16 is  Harrogate P2050/44, photographed when visiting the South Tynedale Railway in 2012, but normally resident at Statfold Barn.

The Judge’s Verdict is that nobody got them 100% correct without a few clues, so it looks like the 2013 Quiz will be a Roll-Over. I bet you can hardly wait.

Meanwhile, winter works continue at Apedale, but Easter will soon be here when we are back running trains. As ever, get in touch here.
