    I would like to know where this locomotive is currently based. Ive clicked all round the web and as far as I can see its currently residing at an undisclosed location in Poole?. I would just be interested in finding out who is restoring it and where it is? Anyone know?

    There's a few 9Fs currently under the radar, 92212 springs to mind & 92219 which is stored at leeming bar on the wensleydale railway.

    Yeah I saw a site - cunarder but no updates on it at all for a few years.

    I know it was at Shillingstone (its not now) it went on a low loader to the GDSF and then seems to have disappeared to a location in 'Poole'. There was a rumour floating around that it was at the Swanage Railway works but its not there as far as I can tell as they haven't got much room anyway.

    So I am guessing that it is tucked away in a warehouse somewhere

    I don't think its there, as it would be listed on all the sites - they can't all be making typos - I know they have 35018 and some other smaller boilers but I don't think they have 92207 as well although no-one seems to have taken any photos round there for a while either?

    92207 is at a private site in the Poole area. It is being worked on by the owner and his team.

    I know where the loco is, I have done some looking around and it is at the old MoD factory in Holton Heath. No public access but as far as I know, it is being restored there.

    There is still a 9f boiler at Bury with 92207 painted on the front end.
