    Any news on when she will be back? Is she still at Barton Hill? The web site hasn't been updated for a while so just interested.

    Thanks

    The flat on the wheel caused the spring to break. I believe that the Trust is still waiting for a new spring to arrive. Then it has to be weighed etc. The Duke may make the last TE for which she is rostered but if it doesn't then it's back to her ELR base I suppose. Hope this helps.

    Just out of interest how did they end up with a flat on the trailing truck wheels?

    I think i read somewhere that it was likely due to being moved while scotched, its hard to imagine any other reason.
