    So it could be 34067 running with George Stephenson nameplates or 44767 running with Tangmere nameplates.....

    For future reference:

    98 - Steam TOPS class. 7 - BR Power Class 67- Last two digits of running number (unless taken)

    E.g. 98872 is Flying Scotsman, 98812 is British India Line

    Thanks for that. I was just joking around as sometimes you never know what is going to appear from Carnforth.

    List seems pretty comprehension.

    Railcam data shows 34067 on 5M51. Nothing on RTT etc. but that is not unusual for anything out of 10A.

    Also available on the RCTS site:

    https://rcts.org.uk/locomotives/tops-class-98/

    Apologies for the thread drift. The RCTS list begins "The following numbers have been issued by the Rolling Stock Library (RSL) for privately owned steam locomotives." It appears that 600 Gordon apparently didn't get a TOPS number despite going on the main line on several occasions including to and from Bold Colliery in steam in 1980. Was that because it was still technically an Army locomotive at the time and therefore not privately owned, or is it missing from both lists?

    I can neither confirm nor deny that they have appointed a new pontiff for the independent state of Carnforth and North Lancs.

    Especially noting that 60103 / 4472 is classified 8P when BR classified it 7P6F; suggestions of "modifications" perchance ?
