BGLR : Return of Percy

There has been some more stock rotation at Birches Green. Percy has returned from the reserve fleet to replace Tango was the active shunter / light train loco. Tango in turn has replaced Ruby as the reserve shunter / engineering train loco, Ruby has gone into reserve.

Another change has been the addition of a new local passenger train consisting of a single coach. The reason for this was the arrival of the Rail Car. This has replaced the push-pull coach on commuter services and meant that there were four active locomotives but only three normally scheduled trains (express passenger, light freight and heavy freight) so the BGLR has added another train to the mix so that everyone has something to do!
