Editors Notes: 

A second bite of the cherry that was the "Three Ivatts" gala on the Isle of Wight last weekend showcases the Mogul no 46447 shunting a rake of engineers' wagons at Havenstreet. The legend on the side of the Shark ballast brake van says "Return to Meldon" but this is highly unlikely although the Mogul itself will have returned to the mainland and the East Somerset Railway by the time you see this clip. Each of the Tanks remains on the Island though, one of each being seen here with one of the splendid rakes of four-wheel and bogie coaches which have won many plaudits for the Railway's dedicated team of restorers
