Enthusiast and engineer Peter Westmacott, who started the restoration of another locomotive named Gertrude (a Barclay 0‑6‑0T) at his Warwickshire home, died on March 7. He was a Welsh slate quarry enthusiast, making his own flash equipment to take photographs underground. His close connections with the Leighton Buzzard Railway led to several LBR carriage bogies being repaired in his workshop, and he was involved with installing the railway’s air brakes. He bought Gertrude in 1965 and Exmoor Transport completed its restoration in 2009, launching it into service with an event at the LBR, which owns classmate Doll. By that time ownership had been transferred to his daughter, Sarah. It has been on hire to the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway since 2010.
