Now in the last few months of its boiler certificate, No.96 simmers in the Saturday
morning sunshine at Horsted Keynes.




No.65 drops down the 1 in 75 near Nobles with the 1.42pm goods from Kingscote.




No.9017 makes light work of the climb past Three Arch bridge with the 4.05pm from
Sheffield Park on the Saturday afternoon.




No.75027 drifts into Horsted Keynes with the last train of the day from Sheffield Park.




Early on the Sunday morning, the O1 receives some final preparations before
setting off to Kingscote with the first train of the day.




No.672 reflected in the puddles of Horsted Keynes down-yard on Sunday morning.




No.672 was only steamed because of the failure of No.1638, but looked superb on
the pre-Grouping goods set, seen here passing Tremains on the Sunday afternoon.

'Blackmoor Vale' completed the line-up for the weekend, seen here making predictably light
work of the climb through Lindfield Wood.
