    We didn't have the money. I have a funny feeling when 6229 is unleashed on the world things may be different. Let's see...

    Hardly surprising if its due to 'open' at NRM on Wednesday ! Regardless of the long-running arguments over cost/need/benefit, I for one welcome the opportunity to see a Duchess in this condition. Like most, I never thought I'd see the likes of this ! Wow x 3!

    You and the Tyseley guys should be proud, striking sums it up pretty well.

    Now that - Peak Rail - is how to restore an engine in LMS red properly.

    Great pictures. She really looks amazing!
    Are the times the same as what they were supposed to have been on Friday? Only my 4 year old son would love to go see her through Masborough or Swinton.

    regards jess

    Truly spectacular. A beautiful piece of work there by everyone involved.

    Can't wait to go and have a look at it in the Great Hall and marvel and the quality of the workmanship. Wow. =D>

    Where do I donate towards the steaming fund......?

    I agree entirely! She looks superb, art-deco to the extreme!
    Any Idea why they are dragging the 3 coaches with them as well though?
