I personally think the time is now ripe for the footballer group to "get a grip" in the nicest possible way. They have a reasonable condition B1 tender, this could be fully overhauled and form part of an exhibit to talk on the footballers, and the static B17 could be placed in front of it, under cover and for something specifically creative: STEM events, with the loco able to be opened up or looked at by kids (see the Bluebell Railway's excellent Steamworks exhibits). Leaving the B1 tender and the static B17 to sit in a field is not a good long term plan. They need a plan, they need funding, and they need to team up with a - probably LNER biased - railway or museum to suit. This is just my two cents - please don't think I am not rooting for everyone in railway preservation to do well. I am. I just think we need a dose of reality at times.
