1450 is apparently off to the Llangollen's gala on 6-8/13-15 March, going by their advertising. Relating somewhat to Patrick's query, whilst every other visiting loco has its home railway prominently mentioned, 1450 is not mentioned as being resident anywhere!

All the adverts I have seen credit its appearance to "Pull & Push Ltd/Severn Valley Railway".

The event by the way is being run by the 6880 Betton Grange Society and not the Llangollen Railway and is a Steel, Steam & Stars branded event over six days.

I've heard that Mike Little is happy with 1450 being on the SVR...

Heading through Telford on a low loader at about 5 this afternoon. Thankfully I didn't run off the road watching it, though it would have been something different to put in 'State Cause of Accident'.

When did 1450's last overhaul took place? To put it another way, when does her 10-year-which-isn't-really-10-years run out?

Thanks

Patrick

Don't know, but she was in steam yesterday, apparently for an insurance exam.

1450 will visit the South Devon Railway’s February half-term branchline week between 13th and 21st February 2016, per 'UK Heritage Hub' http://ukheritagehub.co.uk/UKHH61.pdf.

Quote:
The visit of 1450 will provide two auto-fitted locos in liveries which match the line’s late BR Maroon Hawksworth auto coaches for the event, and will also be the first time that 1450 has hauled SDR passenger trains in BR lined green in recent years.
