Now widely known and repeated on many enthusiast sites, GW are bidding farewell to most of their class 150-1 sets over the coming weeks. Already departed are 150102, 150122 and 150124 and these have found a new home with Northern Rail at Newton Heath depot, Manchester. Due to leave the west country tomorrow (3rd), also Newton Heath bound are 150101 123 and 129. Real Time Trains has a path in as for these three as FRGT 1557 St Philips Marsh-Newton Heath running on Saturday 03.02.2018. 150108 and 150128 are reportedly off-lease too but going to Bristol Barton Hill for attention. 150104 and 150106 are staying for a further short period pending more replacement sets arriving.
I was fortunate enough to travel to Southampton and back today with 150129 'The Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership', it's last day in traffic in the south of England and attach 3 images here: 1) 150129 prior to departure from Westbury on 2O05 1111 WSB-SOU. 2) On arrival at Southampton and ready to form 2M98 1227 SOU-GMV (Great Malvern). 3) 2M98 waiting time at Warminster.
Best regards for now. Guy Vpncent. Many thanks Guy

Pictures of this building in situ. would be very much appreciated.
The second picture shows the 15th century holy well of St Cyor, just below Luxulyan church. At first sight, this might seem an unlikely picture for the CRS website. But this well flowed with water until 1871, when the spring abruptly stopped. The cause of the stoppage was the construction of the deep cutting and tunnel by the Cornwall Minerals Railway, which interrupted the source of the water. The well has remained dry to the present day. Many thanks for this Peter
