It seems the mixture of air and vacuum braked Mk I stock (believed to be the two green liveried coaches, S5023 + S5027 in an otherwise maroon formation) was the problem which caused late running for the first 'Torbay Express' working of 31/07 (see last months magazine).

National Air Traffic Services, Laxey
Wickham trolleys; 11730/91. 10956/76. Stored Wickham trolley; 5864/51. This vehicle was sold to the Manx Electric Railway many years ago and is now in poor  condition having been in open store outside the Snaefell Mountain tram car shed, in the car park. One of the other two Wickhams was at one time going to South Africa for use according to an employee present, as only one sees regular Winter time use on maintenance duties.
Laxey Tin Mines Rly (visit 06/08) ; 1ft 7in; gauge in use; 21 Bee (GNS 2004). loco shed, under repair; (20) Ant (GNS 2004). Crane (3ft gauge);- 30cwt, Taylor/Hibberd possibly I.O.M No.3 (?). This vehicle was awaiting removal from the site at Laxey for preservation elsewhere. Notes;- It is hoped to soon have a two train, one passenger and one of iron ore tippler using both locos and the installation of a new siding at Valley Gardens (station) near the Laxey water mill 'Lady Isabella'. 

Groudle Glen Railway (visit 07/08)
2ft gauge; in use; steam, Sea Lion (WB 1484/1896). battery, Polar Bear (WR 556801/88). Loco shed visit; steam, Annie (Booth 1922/97). diesel, No.1 Dolphin (HE4094/52). No.2 Walrus (HE 4395/52). Note;- Walrus has not been used for several months. C/stock;- 1, 2, 3. teak set; 1, 2, 3, (with 4 awaiting delivery to the line). wagons; 1, 2, 3, 5 (with others). Note; one of the loco owners present stated that only Pixie from the Leighton Buzzard Railway was needed to visit this scenic and interesting line out of the  recognised and working 'mainland' 2ft gauge steam locos.  
General note;- A number of rolling stock items, including locos, trams and coaching stock was reported as 'stored' in the former Homefield bus garage, Douglas which was not visited due to it being a 'secure site', nothing being on view unless the building was specially opened. Stock here is believed to be continually changing with items being swapped from time to time especially tram cars. All tramcars were accounted for as per the list published in Entrain Magazine for May 2005 (page 33) except trailer cars 50 and 54. The missing two could possibly have been in the bus depot now in store. 


Sandite Trains
It is now unlikely that EWS Class 37s will be used on these trains for the autumn leaf fall season, however Class 60 locos are now expected to be the motive power and several are being prepared at Toton depot. It is possible currently Load-haul liveried 60008 is to receive a new livery for use on these trains. It has also been reported that GW green liveried 60081 is to donate it's bogies to a sandite pool Class 60 loco, and is not to be repaired. Also DRS (using Class 20s or 37s) could run some of these trains although this is unconfirmed.

Xmas Mail Traffic
GBRf are looking at operating a service to Plymouth for the 2005 Christmas period.
