    Hello Pete - just a suggestion for the moderators to consider - how about creating a new page solely to discuss and inform on new build projects? I know there are a lot of people who like to keep tabs on all the new builds. Some sites exist but are not all updated. At the moment all new build discussions go in in with steam loco restoration and maintenance. What do you think?
    regards
    Andy

    Hi Martin
    Sorry to contact you off OG but this seemed valid, yet inappropriate to post amidst tributes to David Shephard.

    Should a dedicated section be considered for obituaries?

    Hi Admin. Congratulations on your addition.
    Can you advise me of the procedure for having a subscription or let me know where on the NP website the information is located.
    Thank you in anticipation of your help in this matter.

    Our area opened up to "European" settlement with the discovery of Gold in the early 1860s- The Cariboo Gold Rush.

    It came into the collection with no history, but presumably was from an abandoned mining site.

    From poking around on the internet it is earlier than the material in the Glasgow archives. Hoping someone can suggest some leads.

      I have no idea where it came from I'm afraid. A friend shared it a few months ago and like you and several others, I really liked it. I have now asked him where it came from and will let you know if I hear anything.

      The photo was from the book, "Decline of Southern Steam" published by Capital Transport Publishing.
      Judging by this picture, I will be getting a copy myself.
