    35018 reported as poorly on the Scarboro' Spa thread, doesn't sound too good for Sunday.

    More info to the failure here: https://www.facebook.com/PRCLT/photos/a.2171123829590659/2440652969304409/?type=3&theater
    And the text accompanying a couple of pics for those not on Faceache:
    Unfortunately 6233 was declared a failure in late hours of last night. During servicing in the sidings at Norwich, its was discovered the Right Inside valve spindle bush had siezed to the valve spindle itself. First thing this morning the support crew has already removed the offending valve from the engine and arrangements have been made to transport the damaged parts back to the West Shed for repair.

    Gutted for the PRCLT Team and for all those on the tour itself.

    Having driven over 120 miles I decided I may as well film it.
    At least the replacement loco was the same colour!
