The CFPS Purchases 2 x 20 Foot Containers

The CFPS have purchased 2 x 20 foot containers from Neil Boden that housed an assortment of spare parts.
One container was collected last Tuesday (16th January) from Washwood Heath and moved to The ELR and the other was collected Tuesday (23rd January) and moved to Bury.
The job was undertaken by Site Movements of Bury who did a great job for us using one of their smaller cranes !!

D200 to visit the ELR

The NRM have now agreed in principle that D200 can attend the 3 Day Class 40 60th Anniversary Gala at The East Lancashire Railway scheduled to run on Friday April 13th to Sunday April 15th.

Please note that the loco will not be operational but it is intended to have it stabled around the station area during the course of the event.

We are also examining the possibility of a photo shoot of all the attending locos, but if it does take place it may be on the Wednesday or Thursday prior to the event starting on The Friday.
If anybody would be interested in attending a photo shoot, would you please register your interest here.
The reason for the request is that subject to the amount of interest shown we may try and organise a day time photo shoot and also an evening one.
Thanks folks

John Stephens
