    Can we have wartime black down one side, apple green down the other, BR number, smoke deflectors and double chimney? So we can cover all bases and please everyone I mean.... :Gagmewithaspoon:

    But on a less daft note, after a long time coming she's so close now, and when she does come back she'll be a credit to all the men and women who have had a hand in her restoration.

    If you think that's difficult, try rigging up the lubrication system on a Spamcan. :)

    I thought the oil just sat in a large puddle between the frames and sprayed around randomly in the general direction of the waggly bits? :eek: ;)

    Yes no need for anyone to drag all that up again as Ralph said we are all friends and certainly there are members of both forums Admin and moderators who are members of both forums and long may it continue as there is plenty of room for both and they actually complement each other quite well IMO.

    Except for paint froth. One is straight to the point "Black", the other, well, just look at the present 6233 thread.

    Here is a link to the website of the Production Company who are making the documentary about 60103 for ITV with Robson Green presenting:
    http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=6&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiUqt_ZzdjJAhUILhoKHWeFArsQFgg5MAU&url=http://silverliningtv.com/programme_library/steam-journey-of-a-lifetime-with-robson-green/&usg=AFQjCNF71jM0fmX9tqt51Y2wfAaOJg2lkw

    There is quite a long trailer available to watch on the site. Just click on the link on the right of the page and it pops up.

    The Programme is scheduled to be shown in February on ITV.

    Much rather it had been done by Guy Martin, would have much more cred....

    And, he would have got his hands dirty!!!
