Self and Mrs M spent most of yesterday at the Churnet Valley Railway for their "Super Power Weekend" featuring 3 S160 American locomotives. We've travelled past this railway many times some 28 years ago when Son was at Keele University, but never really noticed it, though we've also walked on the nearby canal at Froghall Wharf, so yesterday was our first visit to the railway, also meeting up with Andy Sollis. I've been to quite a few of these 'Special Events', but this was probably the busiest I've witnessed, it was absolutely rammed, car parks overflowing, so hopefully the Railway will finish this weekend with a good deal of cash in the coffers, as I understand they are attempting to extend the existing 10 mile run through the last mile or so to Leek, so they'll need the funds, and good luck to them. This is the first time I had seen any of the surviving S160's in the flesh, and the return trip was most enjoyable, though due to the crowds, photo opportunities were somewhat limited, and I was only able to catch pics of 2 of the 3 loco's, the red one ("Omaha" I believe) eluded me, but I did manage a few of 6046 and 5197 double-heading. With luck, Andy will likely have had more chance to photograph the fleet than I managed, so He may add to this thread. Keith.
