    As an A4 was meant to look, being pedantic it's a shame that he didn't pick one of the three others built new with the Kylchap exhaust, the fourth one was Mallard and I don't think the NRM would be amused if he went for that one

    Seems her next job is York-Kings X on the 23rd John. So maybe a LE move to York will be on the cards shortly. She is not on the ELR roster for November. Ear is to ground.

    All absorbing reading, but....can such writings be consigned to their own thread and keep this one for news about 60009?

    Ok I've moved the off topic stuff to a thread of its own so we can continue the interesting discussion on destreamlining while keeping this thread on topic.

    Does this mean I'll not get UoSA haulage on the 23rd...? :Bawling: :Bawling:

    Thinks: wonder if RYTC will let me transfer my booking onto the 20th December tour to York? I'm determined to get a mainline run this year if possible.

    Yes, but not good news, from Ian Riley on the works:-

    "We have however discovered a fault within the boiler that will have serious consequences to the locomotives return to traffic."
