  1. Facebook update September 25th - The Trust were hoping to move Warwickshire down to Bewdley to tie in with the "big shunt" that was planned for Bewdley this month. The move has been postponed until a date to be determined in Spring 2017. This will allow the Trust instead to have the new cylinders manufactured and fitted prior to the intended move.
