    No definite dates, we've requested the Conflats to Quorn through the Ops team. We need to enact some repairs to the containers, and the Conflats will need some repair work and a repaint (thankfully they are mostly underframe, so only really black bitumen paint to spray) and then put the two together.

    To be honest, I'm loathe to divulge the deadline until we have got the Rail Blue applied to the east side. I will say its earlier than the Autumn Steam gala though.
