    According to a post by IR on The Works, it may not be that long before testing. It is due to be re-wheeled on Thursday.

    New photo posted on TheWorks forum showing Braunton with all wheels with valve gear looking about half reassembled.

    Hopefully this link will work for non-members: The Works • Information

    Presumably the photo has moved so the link is broken.

    The photo is still in the same place. I believe something in the URL has now changed. However non members can't view the photo because it was uploaded to the forum.

    Sometime in the mid-1990s the Strathspey had a lined green Mk.1 in the trainset. It was an experiment to see if green weathered better than maroon. It didn't, and looked pretty awful!
