Didn't mean to start a fight! I can't see it either!

I do like a puzzle though!

Hopefully I will hear from ESR in reply to my email to them at the weekend.

I just find it a point of interest.

Quite a few heritage railway sheds have adopted a new code, not previously used by BR, for example Grosmont on the NYMR has allocated itself 50H , Sheffield Park on the Bluebell is 75H There will be others.

These will not all be 'H' of course it will depend upon what was the highest code in that area allocated by BR before 1968. I used to have a full list which came free with one of the steam magazines but I can't find it just now. Some sheds of course survived in the same place, for example 6F Aberystwyth, 10A Carnforth, 41E Barrow Hill Staveley, 50A York, 81C Southall and 81E Didcot, but many heritage lines established loco depots where there wasn't one originally.

It annoys the purists but it is a fairly harmless bit of fun.

UPDATE

This evening I received an email from the Chairman, no less, of East Somerset Railway.

He informs me that many years ago ESR wanted their own code so they simply adopted the next one in sequence of the local codes.

As some of us suspected then! Decent of them to get the Chairman to reply.

H for ‘heritage’ - makes so much sense. :D
