    crunching some numbers......
    of the 213 Locomotives that have left Woodhams Yard since September 1968, by my count 149 or 70% of them have now been returned to steam.
    Of those that have not been steamed so far :
    Two are used for museum display : 35029(sectioned) & 4248
    Three have been used for donor parts where frames have not been cut : 2861, 5227 & 7927 (frames used for County Class)
    Three have been used for donor parts where frames have been cut : 3612, 4115 & 48518
    One has reputedly had it's boiler scrapped but frames remain? 42859
    Hall Class 4942 is included and will return to steam in guise of 2999 Saint Class

    That leaves 54 out there that have not yet returned to steam a few of which are imminent such as 6989, 80097, 92134 for example
