Relaunch of 'Wightwick Hall'

The 150th ex-Barry locomotive to steam, 6989 'Wightwick Hall', is to be officially relaunched into traffic at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre on Sunday March 3rd 2019. https://bucksrailcentre.org/product....e209e5b248177e

The loco will undoubtedly be the star attraction at the BRC's Steam Gala over the weekend of May 26th/27th. https://bucksrailcentre.org/product.php/5/steam-gala

Happy New Year to you, Tony!
A question: The first link in your post is to a Didcot Railway Centre web page. Not sure why it's relevant... but I could be missing something... still a bit fuzzy-headed after last night!

Operator error at this end I'm afraid! This was one of the links I had used in my other new thread last night about the launch of the 'Saint' No.2999 'Lady of Legend' at Didcot next year. Now corrected with the right link for the relaunch of 'Wightwick Hall' at the BRC.

Thanks both for your comments & happy New Year!

Tony

Always good news when something returns to steam, I'll be hoping to view it through the viewfinder somewhere or other in the not too distant future
All the best for 2019 Tony, and reassuring to know senior moments are not for me alone
