    Does anyone know of any plans for an A4 to run on a heritage line this year, please? My grandsons love the look of them and it would be nice if they could have a run on one. Main line too expensive and too long a day out!

    60007 not back until Spring 2019
    60009 a possibility with IRE looking after her now, maybe ELR, although would expect a chance of preserved running in Scotland prior to eventual withdrawal.
    60019 under restoration again at Crewe, no idea on timescales, or if she has even been started.

    No 9 looks your best bet.
