    So how much you looking at for a new boiler and firebox then £150000 or has it gone up now. Seems everyone agrees its a great loco to save, if that's remotely possible. Mainline or Caulden Lowe, or a brace on the ELR, or Keighley, or anywhere in...

    Again you're assuming I wish to read the constitution due to livery. While many many people wish to see it in another colour, it would be nice as I haven't ever seen one in another livery to be able to make my own decision, it's not the reason...

    Oh well...she's at 10A now. Let's hope the next chapter in her history is one that put's fire in her belly and a feather from her safety valves.

    There are obviously different grades of turn so the likes of Shap where interfacing with high speed electric trains occurs would not fit a Crab but Hellifield to Carlisle return might not raise too many concerns. Equally the circuit out of...

  6. Gav106 liked ilvaporista's post in the thread Oswestry Update.

    This week's update is mostly about the people and recognising who is doing the work. We had a good weekend of scrub clearing but mounds of waste are not the most photogenic. The usual work of track preparation was going on in the background and...

    How many rakes does the East Lancs have?

    Is the plan to give full overhaul once mainline work finishes in March? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So the Jacobite with 6/7 and a Class 5 isn't a realistic commercial proposition then.

    And again you seem to be tarring people with the same brush for asking questions about a constitution. In the railway enthusiasts section you get all sorts of people who like to count rivets or collect numbers, my interest is in reading accounts...

    Dear lord someone else has got out the wrong side of bed. There is no obsession about sending everything mainline at all. There is no harm whatsoever discussing a possible use for a class of loco, you are taking things far to seriously. The loco...

    It certainly is not an obsession, Steven, I was simply using some hypotheticals to emphasise what a truly versatile machine a Crab could be. That metaphorical train has left the station but I certainly think a good all round business case could...

    Is the constitution that you refer to the memorandum and articles of association? And is this also known as the incorporation document? As that's the only thing I can find on the companies House website? That mentions nothing to do with any livery.
