Our ‘celebrity’ BR-Brush Class 47 ‘NORTH STAR’ is on the move today, heading northwards to the NORTH YORKSHIRE MOORS RAILWAY where she will spend the next year or two operating on the NYMR under a hire agreement that was put in place last summer. The move was delayed due to logistical challenges along the route, but everything is now in place and the loco is on the move today. More details including route information will be posted ASAP.
