    Back when there was the small incident with Tangmere and a dropped connecting rod, I dug out a picture I had of the crosshead on 35028. Clearly stamped on the gudgeon pin ... 35005.

    When we stripped 34081 back in 1977, we made a list of the numbers stamped on components of the motion. Quite a few early WCs had donated parts over the years. I wonder if any original components from 34081 exist on other preserved examples.

    With 35005 we found half the motion and the rear drive wheel were all up as belonging to 35019 French Line CGT

    Let's face it, parts moved around during overhauls and when lots of the same class were together anywhere. Not much different from Routemaster buses when they went into Aldenham Works.

    With 1/3rd of the class still with us, (is that right?), I wonder if some little (or big!) bits from all of them are still kicking around. :cool:

    Well just taking into account the boilers your looking at least half the class having at least surviving component.
