    Things seem to.have gone quiet on this front, has there been any news on this loco? Are the remaining parts still impounded? Has the owner started work on a new boiler? Has anything changed since the boiler was cut?

    The wheels and frame were moved to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway at Ludborough that was in 2016, not sure if they still there or not, the boiler went for scrap to pay for the rent owed when the loco was stored at Binbrook Airfield.

    The loco & tender wheels were on a siding uncovered, the frames were on old sleepers covered over, I asked a volunteer working there who informed me about the bits and pieces.
