The restoration of 2701 is now complete. It will be marshalled into the LNER Set (Set N) during the week commencing 21st July, and it is expected to enter traffic on Saturday 26th July 2008, almost exactly 50 years after its withdrawal, by British Railways, from passenger service. Its first return trip will be for volunteers & supporters who have made this restoration possible, later in the day there will be seats available to enthusiasts and members of the public.
