Phot BS: Another new steam loco! (19) BS: Another new steam loco! 01 Sep 11


Hot on the heels of new build A1 Tornado, the Great Western Society (GWS) have recently announced that they are going to build a 47XX 2-8-0 heavy freight loco. Basicly a Hall class on severe steriods, the 47s were employed on heavy fast night freight turns, which earned them the nikname, Night Owls. Time to build? Probably not as long as Tornado due to Swindons standardisation policy (Hall boiler etc). This one's going to worth watching!

The A1 Trust arn't hanging around either, they are looking into building a P2 2-8-2!

Who said steam is dead?! Bring it on lads!

Wassail!! Chris
