The original plan on the 1st of April was to spend the day taking snaps of the MHR, unfortunately due to the coach issue it would only have been the U Class running with the Class 205 so it was decided to make a rare visit to the Isle of Wight Steam railway. It was hoped to see LSWR O2 No. 24 'Calbourne' in action or at least A1X Terrier No. 8 Freshwater however we ended up with Hunslet Austerity No. 198 'Royal Engineer'. Also included are shots from the Ferry.
