HAMPSHIRE Narrow Gauge Railway Trust’s Bagnall 0-4-0ST Wendy will provide steam at Hampton & Kempton Waterworks Railway’s (HKWR) ‘Hanworth Loop’ line this year.
Wendy will be covering for HKWR resident Andrew Barclay 0-4-0ST Darent, which leaves at the end of May for boiler repairs, including fitting a new front tubeplate, and seems unlikely to return this year.
Hampshire NGRT’s other steam loco – Hunslet 0-4-0ST Cloister, currently visiting Amerton Railway – will appear at Ffestiniog Railway’s ‘Hunslet 125’ (see story above) and has visits to Bursledon Brickworks (replacing a projected visit by Phil Mason’s Kerr, Stuart 0-4-0T Diana) and Richmond Light Railway lined up for this summer.
