A sight to savour

Model Rail (UK) - - Opening The Box -

A sight not seen for over 20 years: all three Vale of Rhei­dol 2-6-2Ts in steam – and in GWR green. This pho­to­graph was posed to mark the re­turn to ser­vice of No. 7, which has not steamed since 1998. The over­haul has largely been car­ried out by ap­pren­tices and trainee en­gi­neers in the rail­way’s Aberys­t­wyth work­shops. Hope­fully, one will be re­painted in BR blue in the not-too-dis­tant fu­ture! THOMAS BRIGHT/SR
