D8142: Whistling Wardrobe Festive Farewell

Postby Rusty Spooon » 07 Dec 2008 20:39

Many thanks to the dedicated Souls who braved sub-zero temperatures in unheated stock to join us in giving D8142 a thrashworthy and fitting send off today. 8) The old girl performed impeccably.

Thanks to your generosity, we managed to raise £200 for both the Llangollen Railway and our restoration funds.

D8142 is booked to leave Llangollen tomorrow, although I understand her destination may not be the GCR as has been suggested elsewhere.

Ken Carr from Visions International was on hand to record the event, hence the use of the Carry On Clagging headboard. Many thanks to Ken - I can wholeheartedly recommend checking the finished footage out when it becomes available. In addition to the 20, the headboard was also carried by another member of the LDG fleet that doesn't 'get out' much. :D

Best wishes
Rusty Spooon
