I see that the loco 34070 arrived today. No tender yet. She looked great. Is 'Manston' only going to be used at the gala or will she sneak onto the normal timetable?

I think it's probably due to clearance issues, which I think there was a similar situation with 3802 since that couldn't be turned either. Sure someone else can say more...
