As an aside, I love the title of this thread and the due reverence carried throughout.
No John, Bunchie or even Jonny baby, just plain old Mr Bunch.
Correct..... For the record it's not worked for over 20 yrs and its owner definitely wouldn't sell.
I guess you've got more money than sense, then!
Like everything, depends on mechanical condition snd how much practice individual crews get with particular types.
I have photos of RSH Austerity 0-6-0ST 7298 Progress on BR metals in the 80s going from Cadley Hill to Coalville light engine, it stopped for water at Rawdon on the way.
80078 was his third project and already owns four and five ...
Even so, he still might have his reasons to sell it.
Anyway now that every class 4 under the sun has been suggested, we just need to wait for the official announcement.
Perhaps it's a Brush type 4 - which would presumably confound everybody............. (smilie pun intended....!)
Or maybe they've missed a digit out and it's a class 04 shunter...
or he'd been shopping abroad and its a DB 44 ,
Anyone mentioned 75069 as a stab in the dark???
It got a mention on page 1.
And it's not far off a return to traffic, can't see it being popular with SVR supporters, flogging off a machine that's had money spent on it then flogging it straight away.
It would be one for the owners, the 75069 Fund, and I've no idea what their agreement with the SVR would say about it.
Although hopeful it isn't the case, it depends on the agreement. 6960 was on a run and restore agreement, it was returned to working order then promptly sold.
Very true I'd forgotten about that.
Separate names with a comma.
