T-16T-4-T.jpg (3054 bytes) Here it is stabled in the bay at Totnes during October 2017 After many photo charters and seven years weathering B550179 is looking a little weather beaten but is still basically sound and in occasional use on photo charters and the occasional demonstration goods train.

After a huge amount of effort by a small band of truly dedicated volunteers here is the end product.  April 2010.  Well done guys, an impressive restoration.

We're trying to find time to create a full photographic record of the restoration for the web site.  We have all the images and information.  All we need is time!
