There has been much controversy on the T3 around the NRMs gifting of the locomotive to the Swanage Railway. Many have expressed and opinion on whether the T3 should be overhauled to operational condition or not. Leaving all the controversy on the other thread I'm wondering regardless of ownership etc etc; What portion of people think it should be conserved in its current condition perhaps with its paintwork restored to its former glory but non-operational with its Southern Railways patched firebox etc And What portion off people would rather see it running even if that means an amount off original material needs to be replaced. Most of the firebox at a minimum I suspect. I'm also wondering how many off those wishing to see it in steam would be prepared to donate generously to make that happen. Edit. I probably should have posed the question as "Assuming it's viable, Would you like to see the T3 overhauled...." rather than "Should the T3 be overhauled....". I didn't mean to imply any obligation to do so I'm just interested in the views of members of this forum. I've added another choice to represent some views expressed in text.
