Hello,
After a meeting with various important persons, a number of issues have been ironed out.
Work should re commence on the locomotive fairly soon.

Happy to provide more information via PM's.

Hello,
The locomotive's overhaul is hoped to be completed for this event.
I understand the locomotive will not be involved with the big 4-6-2's Gala unless of course the is a shortage of locomotives due to unforeseen issues as there were in 2000!
I can but hope!

813 is not a Flyer nor any kind of wild Wind, far to unique for that kind of thing. A great Ambassador like a certain 'posh' nutty chocolate!

Hi Nick

I assume the event to which you refer is the Season Finale Gala November 4th - 6th for which http://www.svr.co.uk/SEItem.aspx?a=109 says

Quote:
Special attractions include:
First Gala appearances of Great Western Railway Pannier Tank No. 7714 and Port Talbot Railway Tank No. 813 (subject to completion of overhauls).

Hello,
Great to see the loco being put back together!
Admin reported that there is a good possibility that 813 will be boiler tested within the next six weeks......being ready for the end of year late gala.

Hopefully the rods which are being machined should be on the locomotive by the end of August. Then down to Kidderminster for painting
