    Looking forward to seeing this finished. I thought work had stopped on it.

    "Temporarily paused" is probably the best phrase! Obviously keeping the Hunslets etc running takes priority and work on the railcar fits in around it. The FR would like it for the Quirks event next year but no idea if it will make it.

    Presumably Covid hasn't got to Cornwall yet, as it normally takes about twenty years for stuff to make it down there...

    So a least the government response will be timely and effective somewhere then.
