A NEW ARRIVAL

The 24th June saw the arrival of the Colne Valley Railways latest acquisition, WD200 from the Kent & East Sussex Railway.
An 0-6-0ST this is from the same batch as our WD190, and they used to work together at Shoeburyness Military Railway.  WD200 stayed there until 1970, when a group from the K&ESR purchased it.  It saw regular service there until 2012 and now needs an overhaul to get her back on track.
Having recently finished WD190, our Engineering team - the Eccentrics - should be able to get this one working in no time!!
