    I read in Steam Railway that 1450 may go to the SDR's 40th Gala, what are the chances of this?

    I think anyone who has anything to do with 7821 in the last couple of years of its boiler ticket will be able to confirm that the engine is very tired and needs a full overhaul before it is used again.

    A lot of Bull **** must have been used to con the new owners into believing that the engine could have few repairs to get a 2 year extension, let alone running the 2008 santa season!
