My comments were made simply to illustrate the point that everyone has their favorite locos and that we should accept that fact, ultimately we all have the same aim don't we.

I know that the lads who are running the 4930 fund are ding a great job so let's look forward to seeing it back in traffic.

So, back on topic.
Anyone know how the work on the Flying Pig is going? I am looking forward to seeing her out and about since i missed her last time round. Looks like a proper little workhorse of a Mogul when i saw her in Bridgnorth shed at the last gala.

I also eagerly await the return to traffic of the SVRs GWR 2-8-0 resident 2857 since i got my hands dirty a couple of years ago as a svr apprentice cleaning the muck out of it. Followed by a nice slide show and free poster that i still have somewhere.

New crowns being machined for the driver boxes.
One horntie replaced, two others found to be cracked and new castings awaited.
Lub pipework being untangled.
Patterns for replacement steampipe clamps in progress by yours truely.
Boiler back on its back. I wouldn't be surprised to see the foundation ring going back in soon.
New cab roof complete. If not, darn near to.
Transverse ties nearing completion of replacement bushes and pins.
Amongst other things.

Well it wasn't done properly first time round!

Before she entered Bridgnorth shed for overhaul where on the line was she hidden since i can't honestly remember seeing her when she was out of ticket. Also where has Gordon disappeared too?

She was stored at Highley for many years where she was later joined by 7819. 600 is in store at Kiddiminster waiting to move into the engine house along with 80079, 1000, 7325, and 4930. 1501 and 47383 will also go on display but they are stil at Bridgnorth.

i can't wait to see 7812 running, i missed her when she was last around mainly being too young! (although for all i know she may have been the engine on one of the many santa specials i was taken on!)

i've always had a soft spot for her from the old svr news issues, and seeing her from the bridge at bridgnorth last weekend, she looks amazing! only a matter of time now! Very Happy

Is 2010 "Year of the Engine"? As well as 6634 -

- 1501 is coming out of the Engine House in October with an overhaul planned to be complete towards the end of 2010/early 2011 (assuming adequate resources available to do the work in the time period) (1501 thread)
- the spare boiler is intended for 7714 which is expected become a failure anytime between now and next year and will give it a reasonably quick turnround and back in service for late 2010. (1501 thread)
- No. 2857 - Churchward, Ex GWR - Restoration at an advanced stage. Due back in service circa 2010 (website)

Heady times, a lot of work to do...

Patrick

And 4150 coming along quietly at Bewdley.

Can someone find us an ex-LMS engine from somewhere to "redress the balance" a little? Wink

Besides there was a heavy LMS bias during the past years...

Of course 82045 is an interesting blend of GWR and LMS basic design work. That way it either satisfies everyone or upsets them all. Wink
