We are very pleased to report that D5310 ran well at the Winter Warmer gala. She ran with the Class 104 (a fellow BRCW product)/127 DMU, 7822 and 80072, the latter making for another superb recreation of a Waverley route working with the suburban coaches.
It really was a treat to see and hear her out and about in the Dee Valley again. She is seen tucked behind the crossing gates at Glyndyfrdwy on Friday 30th December, piloting 7822.
Meanwhile, Mark spent part of New Years eve 47 making patches for the radiator top rail and has tacked them into place, ready for the railway’s welder to complete the job. A step closer to a watertight 12LDA28C!
