    Once upon a time at the Bluebell Railway, Terrier 'Fenchurch' back to back with engine 7742 'Bello' from their twinning partner the Museumsteamtram Hoorn-Medemblik pulling the Metropilitan set as they did back in 2004.

    That's certainly something different in the way of screenshots. Very nice Rutger.

    I always like a representation of a historical event or representation of an actual historical service. Well done Rutger. It would not have been the simplest of tasks to have 7742 brought to the UK for its spell on the Bluebell Railway.

    Can't see why it would be anymore difficult than moving a loco between non-mainline connected UK lines. The legislation should have been no issue as it is (was) all within the EU.

    Perhaps it transited the channel tunnel or it came via ship. Neither quite the trip on a low loader within the UK road network. Closest within the UK would be moving locomotives to/from the IOW Steam Railway. If it did come via a ship (such as a Ro-Ro) you can never take a maritime transit for granted. The show last year on antique carriage restoration covered the transit of an old 1870s 4-wheeler from the IOWSR to Llangollen. In the end someone had to have insurance to cover the peril of the transit.

    A Class 153 slows down as it approaches Coswarth Level Crossing, 4 miles East of Newquay.

    NS 7742 came from the Netherlands by road transport via Harwich (ferry) I believe. Earlier our square tram engine 18 came along with own coaches and coupling van. They tought it couldn't climb the hills, but it did... On the other side engine 323 'Bluebell' and Fenchurch came to Hoorn.

    Before NS 7742 went to the Bluebell, they made the original vacuum brake (as used at Dutch tramways) in working order, so NS 7742 was able to pull and slow down the train as well!

    Kind regards,

    Rutger
