Our Austerity saddletank Cumbria has completed two years in service at the Battlefield Line in Leicestershire and will remain there for 2017. This follows a successful stint at the Mid-Norfolk Railway for its first hire since returning to action after extensive boiler repairs.
5643 is also remaining at the line it has spent two years serving - in its case, the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Railway in the Yorkshire Dales.
And FR Number 20 remains operational locomotive in residence at Locomotion, the National Railway Museum at Shildon, County Durham. FR20 is steaming regularly at Locomotion throughout the year.
