Eastleigh100 news

Eastleigh will host the first public appearance for more than 18 years of
No. 50026 Indomitable. In it's final stages of a restoration to main line
condition, the loco, once a resident of Booth's Rotherham, will be started
publicly for the first time on the Saturday. Finished in large logo blue
livery, the weekend will also see the loco re-dedicated by some of the
survivors of the WW2 aircraft carrier that was scrapped in 1955. Withdrawn
in December 1990, after a spell at Laira and Booth's the loco, intended as a
source of spares for 50027 Lion, was moved to MoD Bicester for restoration,
and was the loco that was dropped. Fully repaired, it's appearance is not to
be missed.
Also appearing, and making its debut in Loadhaul livery will be No. 50035
Ark Royal, and it is hoped this loco will be rededicated too.
There should also be on site a couple of Class 59, a pair of Colas 47s,
37425, 47580, and some DRS Class 37s.
Tickets for Saturday are selling fast and it is recommended that visitors
opt for Sunday/Monday.
