It took three attempts to get some steam in February with the appalling weather cancelling a trip to Barrow Hill & a backup plan of Bluebell railway the following Saturday. Happily a trip was finally made and the Bluebell railway gave my first scenes of Southern steam for 2014.

The original roster also seemed to change a few times with it originally consisting of S15 No. 847 with U No. 1638. The S15 was in turn swapped for the C No. 592 which by the time I visited had been swapped with H No. 263.

So the final lineup consisted of:

SR U Class No. 1638
