    46443 is the only steam loco I've ever driven (21st birthday present - 20 years ago this year :(), so yes definite soft spot! 46512 did a lovely job on our trip Easter Sunday.

    92219 has now made it into the shed after 46464 vacated the space at the back of number 2 road. Dismantling is expected to start in June, so far there has been an independent boiler / firebox inspection and report, as well as a few rivet heads burnt off and split pins removed. A blog to chart progress is planned.
    Not the best quality picture though.

    Be interesting to see how 92219 progresses after its long tour of yards at Buxton, Butterley, Kirkby Stephen, Tebay etc, have passed it on the motorway a couple of times.

    Really look forward to seeing the last 'proper' BR steam loco restored. (I'm ignoring the show pony!)

    If the black 5 is anything to go by, the 9F has a very bright future.
    Personally I would like to see it heading a train back to Grantown.

    You are far from alone in that.

    Excelent to see the 9F make it in to the shed.

    Aviemore has excelled in turning out locos to an impeccibly high standard, this one will be some sicht when finished.
