CSPL has temporarily withdrawn its locomotive Great Western 2-8-0 No.2807 from operations at the GWSR. 

We are still in the first year of bedding in the engine post a 3 1/2 year Heavy General Overhaul(HGO), issues have arisen that are best to address now. The loco is being moved to Ian Riley's facility in Heywood, Lancs, to address these minor issues asap.

The CSPL Board and Riley's have agreed a plan to address them to ensure 2807 can return to service and we (CSPL) can focus on the engine  operating at the GWSR with potential visits to other preservation railways in the coming years.

Any questions please address them to (CSPL Director)
