I'm sure we would all love to see the Shillingstone project grow and prosper, and it would be fabulous to see a 9F on S&D metals again. But restoring a 9F from Barry condition in the open air with little in the way of engineering facilities is, if not impossible, then at least very, very difficult. It's a project which really needs the facilities of a Crewe, Bridgnorth, Ropley or Sheffield Park to make it happen, and I can't help thinking that 92207 will end up at such a location eventually. Whilst this might seem like a blow to the Shillingstone project, at least it would allow the guys to get on with rebuilding the railway infrastructure. And when there's a sufficient length of running line to exercise large locomotives (if I may borrow an oft-misquoted line) "If you build it, they will come".
