Transferred from Ipswich to Norwich today was B7RLE 66977 KX05MHA, due to be swiftly repainted out of Ipswich colours and should be out Monday or Tuesday!

That is the articles main detail, and the quick detail you would want. 66967 is transferred from Ipswich to Norwich and is to be repainted.

I do not agree with the two earlier contributions regarding your post.
You gave the detail plus the link to your blog.
Cannot understand what is wrong with that.
I prefer a link to an article rather than a cut and paste of someone else's work

Let's 'Keep Calm' but not 'Carry On'!

I'm happy with things either way.

I occasionally post a photo on the Forum. The reason I don't link to my photos elsewhere is that I don't have an 'elsewhere' (blog, flickr, etc).

Some people do.

As Forum membership and posting is voluntary, as are people's own blogs, we can't insist that members re-post their every photo on the Forum, nor that they copy'n'paste the full text of blog entries.

All I'd like to insist upon is that, if people link to their own blog, they put a link to the ATVBF on their blog.

I think that, mostly, bloggers who are Forum members already do us the courtesy of linking back.

With regard to information from news media, my own practice is to post a 'digest' quote and link to the full article. This gives Forum members some details whilst staying within the 'fair dealing' provisions of copyright law. And the link drives interested readers to the news website.

Regards,

Richard.

Alexander Dennis Pointer Dart 42921 EU05AUN (The Norwich odditiy!) has been repainted, and entered service yesterday. It's livery differs slightly from what is standard Olympia livery nationally, however.
