    On the Bluebell:

    In traffic
    BR Std 5 73082 "Camelot"
    SR S15 847
    SR Q 541
    SECR H 263
    SECR C 592 (will go out of traffic in mid May, but is currently operational - see it while you can!)
    SECR P 323 "Bluebell"
    SECR P 178
    Fletcher Jennings 3 "Captain Baxter"

    Coming in to traffic during the first half of the year:

    SECR O1 65

    80151 and 34059 are possibilities for the second half of the year but probably don't meet your "speculation" clause.

    I think that's the S160 that used to run on the NYMR that was moved to Paignton a year or two back.

    MHR should have 41312, 92212, 925 Cheltenham (after its repair is complete), 76017, 45379 and I think I saw in Steam Railway its hoped to have 506 back.

    80078 was hoped to be finished by Christmas, but it didn't quite happen:(.

    However, when I visited it's owner's workshop last Monday the final touches were being applied to the completely rebuilt bunker, which should be re-fitted to the loco in the next few days. The only work then outstanding will be painting, after which it will move the short distance to Mangapps for running-in.

    All being well, it will be in service over Easter, if not before:)

    On the subject of S160's has 5197 returned to steam at the CVR yet and also there's 3278 at Tyseley (I think its still there) but not sure if it is back this year or not.

    If they both do then we'll have a good line up of S160's. 5197, 6046, 5820 and 2253 with 3278 as an outsider.
