Roster Update: 37109 will now run in place of D832 this coming Sunday. A serious oil leak has been found and must be investigated before the Warship can run again.

Thanks to everyone who turned out for the Autumn Diseel Weekend! We hope you were suitably entertained and we're looking forward to seeing your photos and video through the usual channels!

Special thanks to TPE/DRS, West Coast, CFPS and Victor Korzeniewicz for assistance with locos and to the ELR Volunteers and Staff for making it all possible. Thanks All!
