Mallard 75

Everyone at the NRM will be very relieved that the Mallard 75 event is proving very popular and with lengthy queues (water and fruit provided) to see the engines. The event I read has far outstripped the 2012 Railfest.  There are some leads like the NRM's own take. A Daily Mail report. The Daily Telegraph story. I have not been myself but did go to Shildon to see the finished Dominion of Canada. Trip advisor has given very good reviews. More or less co-incidentally all the closure stories have been put to bed.

On he 19th July the NRM reported that 140,000 people had visited the A4s at York since 3rd July. A Flickr album for the event is here.

Slipped into the NRM Twitter feed on the 12th July was confirmation that Paul Kirkman who has been acting director since November 2012 is now confirmed in the post as director. " As we see record figures for we're happy to announce appointment of new Director, Paul Kirkman, who joined last Nov on secondment".
