1450 Failure

Unfortunately loco 1450 has run a small end bearing  and is detained in the workshops for  emergency repairs before going on to its original Dean Forest Railway destination. I am so disappointed. It was only "passing through" Broadway for the Gala weekend but nevertheless the "Coffee Pot" has been the theme of the "Steaming to Broadway" Blog this year and it would have been great to see one of the mark at Broadway, albeit on its low loader in the car park. A  great shame.
However the show must go on, as they say, and pannier tank 5764 will take its place. the Severn Valley connections of 5764 have kindly let it out for a long weekend at no cost to the GWR. This ubiquitous little work horse was a familiar sight at Broadway, particularly in the goods yard and it will be good to have a close up view of it once again.
