Which article is that Martin? (I guess I missed it in the thread)
latest Steam Railway Ian
apologies , should have said
I understand it was taken out of service early for a quick overhaul so it could be back up at Fort Bill next year
No as there is no combined Brake valve or air piping. The lock doesn’t need the be airbraked, it just needs an air pump and controls for working airbraked stock.
Clan Line isn’t airbraked, it’s all three when it’s working; steam brake on the loco, vacuum tender and air for the train.

Slim to none I would say sadly .
Hope your wrong but I have to agree with you.
60163 Tornado at wet and windy Shap Wells and Birkett Common. Not my best ever video sadly .
Considering the conditions the boy dun gud
