    Unlikely I do not think the WSR has any marine facilities. The DSR has both marine and steam engineers and facilities, that is why she was chosen to be operated by them.

    I really hope this loco gets somewhere this time. It's had a sorry and undeserved history: 15 years working for BR followed by 55 years changing hands as scrap.

    Isn't Hogwarts Castle a Hall with ideas above its station? :)

    Heritage Railway magazine this month reports she is off to the WSR to be restored there.
