Stop Press: No.30541 re-enters service today.
The SR Maunsell Q-class is seen here in John Sandys' photo, at the head of the 11am train this morning. The locomotive, belonging to the Maunsell Locomotive Society, was restored from Barry scrapyard condition, entering service on the Bluebell in 1983. Its latest overhaul started in 2011, with much input from our volunteer Loco Works Working Group, in addition to our workshop staff.
