Frome - Welshmill Lane
G Vincent Many thanks again Guy.
Harry Patch, patched up.
43172 'Harry Patch' was quickly repaired at Laira following it's extended stay at Castle Cary in February. The power car was moved up to Westbury with a pair of wheelskates applied at a maximum speed of 10mph on the night of 14th, Colas loco 70809 being used. By 10am on 15th 'Harry' had been loaded onto an Allelys low-loader and was removed via the A350, M4 and M5 to Laira depot where the necessary work was quickly undertaken. 43172 returned to normal traffic on Monday morning, February 20th and has performed well ever since. On the murky morning of March 16th it called at Westbury atop 1C74 0706 Paddington-Penzance, running exactly to time.
G Vincent Many thanks for this report and pictures.
