    only the original ones, dependant on which way the winds blowing, :) So what colour is it, I think its going to be flat black, with 98767 in sunshine lettering, with Yorkshire Railways on the tender

    I'm going for a mismatch of colours with 34016 on the cab side and Bodmin plates on.

    Whatever one thinks of WCR one has to admire their ability to keep c.100t of metal hidden!

    Looks rather good in "1967 End of Southern Steam" condition. I hope that the test run goes well today.
    I wonder which boiler she is now running with. Wasn't her boiler very tired after her last stint on the Main Line?

    If I were a betting man I would suspect 34073's as her chassis has been knocking around in various location at 10A boiler less for ages.

    Good shot of Con rod little end pin nut, with split cotter in position too, although I would have opened it a little more.

    if she's retained her air brakes, next years northern belle tours might see flat top haulage, and heres hoping, an Bournemouth Belle recreation using the same pulmans especially if Tangmere and Bil come down together

    He wouldn't trust a Klingon trader, he got it from Quark instead.

    Probably already pencilled in for the Belles as air braking has been retained, next it's painting, a decent shade of West Coast Maroon.

    Why do i have this image, in my mind, of a bird of prey uncloaking next to Tangmere, as she's running, and the fireman says to the driver, " theres a Klingon on the starboard bow Jim. :):)
