1 - A huge thank you must go to the railway
for arranging and hosting the visit, especially Matt Bentley.
2 - 36 and 38 were in service especially for the society visit. This included a passenger train over the full extent of the line and light diesel runs for photography.
3 - Whilst most loco's have names, many are removed for secure storage and this is why they may not be currently carried.
4 - Little Jim - Schoma 1676/55 is currently off site.
5 - "SUE" is identified at the railway as Wkm 2981/41, which differs to 15EL. The railway believes Wkm 3032/41 is with M Haytor (p.196), but the location of Wkm 3287/43 is yet to be established.
6 - "SUE" - Saxby 1943/99 (p.198) is reported as dsm, undergoing a major revamp. As such it is currently unavailable for viewing.
