RIP Dennis Howells

It has been announced that Dennis Howells MBE has passed away at the age of 78. Mr Howells has been the owner of BR(W) 94XX class 0-6-0PT No.9466 since 1977, restoring the loco from Barry Scrapyard condition, first returning it to steam in 1985 & it always looked immaculate.

Dennis was a lovely man who, with his family, looked after 9466 like a pampered pet. They went everywhere with the engine, which was welcomed at events up and down the country, looking after its every need and constantly cleaning and polishing.
