34016 & 73096

Post by 35005CP on Wed Jun 29, 2011 9:49 pm

Hi all,

I have been informed that 34016 (WC Bodmin) & 73096 (Std5) both currently based at the Midhants railway are to go to WCRC Carnforth? not sure if this is Rumour or not? I feel for the railway as both locos are poppular with the crew/s. although it will be nice to see both working on the mainline again, they will both surely have to be fitted with Air Brakes?

I also have to say that I am sure if these 2 magnificent loco's end up at Carnforth that it might be some time before they are overhauled. They have the likes of 35009 to deal with; along with some other Bulleid Pacifics.
Surely would benefit the MHRPS for these to be kept on the line as they have always been popular with the crews?
What do others think?

Which Bulleids are at Carnforth? I thought 35009 etc were at Ian Riley's.

Apologies I meant that they have alot to concentrate on with the likes of other locos at Carnforth; such as 34067 and that because of the business relationship between Ian Riley and JB that this will not get done anytime soon. Of course I stand to be corrected.

Hi all,
Can anyone shine any light on what is happening with these Locos. I've seen a pic of 34016 on the Midhants in Alresford Cattle Dock apparently waiting to be Transported away?! Does anyone know for sure where she and the other of JB's locos are heading off to?

Hi all,
I have been made aware that 34016 Bodmin has left the MHR this morning between 2 x 57's and is on her way to Southall? Can anyone confirm this?
Here are the timings; http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U55190/2014/06/25/advanced

Also does anyone know if her Overhaul is being done at Southall?

Thanks

Andy

Stumbled upon this thread looking for information about what I saw this morning. Which turned out to be 34016 being hauled through Virginia Water, London-bound.

You're all welcome to use these photos for whatever you like if they're of interest. It was fun to watch as it went by!
