The table of contents for this page is a bit ridiculous, but hiding it would make it somewhat difficult to navigate the page I think. Does anyone have any ideas for making the page a bit easier to navigate? --Danny252 (talk) 15:35, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Possibly add level 1 headings for blocks of 5 or 10 years, and make the individual years level 2 headings. You can then limit the TOC to level 1 headings only using {{toclimit|limit=1}}. Or at least I think you can... --Robin (talk) 15:49, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Should references to 50007 Edward Elgar and 50007 Hercules be tied together somehow?

I've added a comment on the renaming. The entries are already linked to the 50007 Loco page, which in turn mentions the gala appearances and the renaming.--Robin (talk) 17:52, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Prompted by Patrick's comment on Nat Pres that the first ever SVRSevern Valley Railway Diesel Gala was held in May 1987, this page began with 1986 as the Stock Book 9th edition stated that the first visiting diesel was in March of that year. However SVRSevern Valley Railway News suggests it was at Kidderminster as a static exhibit which explains the discrepancy.

I've added Autumn 2021. The SVRSevern Valley Railway announced D8568 and BR Class 40 40106 Atlantic Conveyor as home fleet rather than hired or guests and so I haven't added them on this entry. The same will go for 33108 and 50033 in time too, I think. Should we treat these like we did 50007 and D1015 some while back and move to home fleet locos? If so we'll need to change other pages--Patrick Hearn (talk) 18:35, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
