Isn't the present appeal exactly that? (But I agree with the rest of Bill's post.)
They are - Fenchurch is one of two locomotives getting into the overhaul queue.
It is. Hence the rather lukewarm response. That's exactly my point.
If the investigation results in a green light for the overhaul, I'm sure we'll see the appeal proper launched with much bigger fanfare.
I asked the this question about Tallylyn and was told that the wheel centres and reversing wheel were original.
I would need that to be proved - by destructive testing!
Well the old lady is working on that, her coupling rods were original as well until she had an "ooh nasty" moment a few years ago (with apologies to Mr Phillips)
