Could a kind soul in touch with Bewdley MPD just confirm the working status of the four steam locomotives at Bewdley please?

I know there have been times recently when the 37, or one of the 20's have been used on timetabled trains, so is just one of the steam fleet in steam on any given day?

Info appreciated, thanks in advance!

Robert

Not needed at the moment - still at Kidderminster due to lack of room at bdy.

Insurance exams are this coming week so we'll soon know! Boiler certificate officially expires early-mid next year.

I think all is ok now - but someone else will need to confirm!

Current Status
4566, 5764 and 45110 operational, although 5110 appears to be coughing up bits of piston ring, and is sounding very off beat.
46443 failed late saturday with a blowing super heater element, should not be out for too long.

How is 42968? The WSR website reports that it is not likely to got to their gala in early October. Is this true?

Probably yes, because its not really possible to transport anything appart from a pannier out of Bridgnorth due to the lack of space.

Things have moved on since then: it MIGHT be possible! negotiations continue, but there's a good chance she'll be at Minehead.

At the moment she's having a P&V and motion remetalled but should be back together in time.

Website status updated 6 March.

One slight correction is that 75069 shows as overhaul progressing?
