Great shot of the rebuilt 'Bulleid.' I wish this loco had been there when I went to the ELR with some other PUF members in the autumn.

Thanks everyone. 34046 "Braunton" was sent to Ian Riley's works in Bury for an overhaul and should by now have completed a main line test run around the "Carnforth Loop". However, with various minor faults having showed themselves it has remained on the ELR. The main line test run will probably take place in January and if successful the loco will then return to the West Somerset Railway. There is the possiblity of an appearance at the ELR January steam gala!
