Reading SR magazine today. There is an article regarding the possible sale of 80078. Reading the article 80078 was to be handed over to a new owner but the sale has stalled because no one is sure of the value of 80078. I would think there must be a few railways that would consider taking this loco on. The benefits of running an 80xxx tank are well proven in steam preservation. SLL has also asked Swanage Railway to buy 80078 but according to the article all talks came to a dead end. There is also talk of SLL moving out of Herston works because of the increase in rent which has increased by 150%. SLL are currently looking at new premises according to the article.
