DHR – News from the line 2008

B’s at Tipong 
789 has been working, and has received a smart new green coat, with yellow numberplates.  796,  dead on shed, but steamable, has also been repainted in light blue, again with yellow numberplates.  Bagnall ‘David’ is not steaming well, and they are using their small diesel in preference for the Agragati Khani, where the viaduct will not support the heavier ‘B’class

NFR Management 
The ‘top brass’ of the Northeast Frontier railway had a meeting with local officials in the wildlife reserve between Sevok and Gulma – they crossed our WP special at Sevok on a fleet of about ten permanent way trolleys!
