Black 5 45110 at Watchet on the West Somerset

On the 14th March 2008 at the West Somerset Railway's Spring Gala Black 5 4-6-0 45110 is arriving at Watchet en route to Bishops Lydiard.
Built by the Vulcan Foudry Ltd in 1935 she was preserved in 1968.
She can normally be found on the Severn Valley Railway which thankfully is now up and running over the full distance between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster after last years floods.

I was delighted to see the Black 5 45110 on your web site and that it is still steaming. My Father Colin Lyons was, in 1935, a boilermaker at the Vulcan Works in Newton le Willows and undoubtably worked on this very locomotive. He would have been very proud to know that it has been preserved and is still running after all these years, as is his Son. Many thanks
