30072 & 75078

We recently brought you the news of 30072’s sale by it’s owner and its proposed move to the Ribble Steam Railway at Preston. After some speculation of its movement date, the locomotive finally departed Haworth this morning. Obviously the storm gods were not in favour of the move, as can be seen from the photographs but this did not stop 30072 moving to its new home.


It is now all fingers crossed that it will be overhauled by its new owners in time to return to the Railway in 2018 to take part in our 50th Anniversary celebrations.

Meanwhile, in Haworth Goods Shed, BR Standard 4MT 75078 has moved inside and is being prepared by Tim Hanson for its repaint into fully lined BR black ready for its much awaited return to traffic in its authentic BR livery.
