visiting the NNR this weekend, wondered if the B12 was up and running yet?
Nope, it's still at the ELR undergoing overhaul.
This weekend you should have at least 4 steam locomotives running.
9F No. 92203 'Black Prince'
Black 5 No. 45305 'Alderman A E Draper'
Pannier No. L99
Austerity No. 68030
be nice to see the pannier, shame the Ivatt didn't stick around a bit longer.
SVR will want her back ready for their gala!
Reassembly is never a quick or easy job. She looks pretty much the same as when this was taken:

The "Heritage painting" on facebook as updated photos.
Don't anyone get excited by the colour of the paintwork. That is just an undercoat for when it's run in. The Apple Green paint is ready and waiting
Oooh good I was wondering the other day, are there any ex-LNER operating locos in apple green at the mo?
I believe 1306 'Mayflower' and 246 'Morayshire' are the only ones at present though the former is almost out of ticket. Soon to be joined by 4472 & 8572. There was an item somewhere that 1264 might come back in green but not sure how true that was.
