'500.000 for the new storage unit' ? Must be incorrect, surely this must be the expected total cost for the first phase Bridgnorth redevelopment, or someone has got sticky keyboard fingers !

At least there is now some clarity but doesn't explain why there was no mention at previous presentations to (potential) shareholders for such an expensive item Confused

I'm not going to make a habit of commenting on MPD matters, but it is worth noting that the building also enables "Tranter Towers" to be removed, which will provide more space in the main shed for loco overhauls - which is exactly what SVR needs. We all know that overhauls get longer, more complicated and more costly as everything gets older. We also know that "nasties" often do not become apparent until a loco has been stripped down. More space in the shed should allow one loco to be in "stripping/evaluation" mode while heavy repair is carried out on another. When the repair is finished, we'll already know what the next one needs and should be well on the way to getting materials, parts, etc ready for it. That's the theory.....

We also need to be able to accommodate out-of-course repairs; if these can be done without wasting time shunting other locos out first, that can only help productivity.

That we need more steam locos available for traffic is self-evident. It therefore seems logical to try to provide what is needed to achieve this.
