Update 12th May 2014

Swanage Diesel Gala weekend, and "May" has been moved up the line to Corfe Castle. Located at the end of the old goods shed road, this move involved a bit of "bulldozing" through overgrowth but she's on display there, and over the weekend we had many visitors. As you'll see from the pictures, all four bonnet top panels are bolted on (albeit with some adjustments needed) and even over the weekend further work continued, with the left-hand wheels now into grey undercoat. The cab windows have been temporarily refitted to give some weather-proofing whilst out in the open again. 

Thanks to all the Sygnets who have worked so hard to get May to this stage, in which she received many kind words and compliments. 


















On the Tuesday prior to diesel gala, a convoy of vehicles including both "May" and the prototype HST power car 41001 were moved up from Swanage to Corfe.  What a privilege to be coupled to a celebrity engine like that; bet the Project Miller guys never expected that!  :-)
