    That's a surprising (to me) observation but you will know. That suggests to me that it's a significant piece of work and for that reason makes sense.

    LMS will be getting expert at Bulleid boilers as they have been doing a lot of the work on Boscastle's boiler.

    Either that or a small piece of work that requires some bulky, specialist equipment

    Having got my video editing computer working again, I've been catching up with some recent events. Here's a short film of 34046 Braunton on last September's Cotswold Express; seen at Culham, Lyneham & Thrupp.

    Or that the boiler smiths don't much like the idea of commuting to a remote site or living out of a hotel. There are all sorts of possible factors that may not seem that great individually, but add up put together.

    Another very interesting update from SLL about their Bulleids in various locations. Sidmouth is to return to Sellinge for grit blasting of the frames etc. I'm sure this will be put on their website soon.
