Press Release

(Embargoed until 5th January 2019)

Rusper MRC is pleased to announce that a “Naming Ceremony” will take place on 6th January at the Rusper Terminus.

A Class 43 Diesel-hydraulic “Warship” locomotive D843 will be re-named in memory of Life Member, Brian Cox, who passed away last month.

Chairman, Brian Roper, said; “This re-naming is in recognition of the very generous donation from Brian Cox and of his service and support over many years.”

Following the ceremony, Brian B Cox will pilot A4 Dennis L Price on an express passenger service to Hookwood providing opportunities for photography.

Regrettably, temporary name plates will be necessary as the supplier of etched brass plates could not meet the delivery requirements of RMRC. Proper plates should be available mid year.
