    Yeah, there's a really good interview he did a couple of years back where he outlines the masterplan. Found it: https://www.railwaymagazine.co.uk/3706/from-our-archive-life-of-riley-steams-newest-works-where-rails-are-not-needed/

    As I understand it, they've moved from the ELR yard at Baron St (and by the looks of the photos the frames were a bit overgrown) into Riley's works a short distance away. I'm not sure of the precise locations but I think they're a few streets...

    Would it be too much to hope that they manage to get it done before 35028 and 35018's tickets expire? 3 merchants on the mainline is a pleasing thought.

    I can't seem to link to the post or I would. Good news, though. I assume it'll be a good few years. Riley's seem to be quick workers but it looks like it's in not much more than Barry condition.

    I'm sure I'm not alone in finding posts like this very irritating. Why not post the loco concerned and the home concerned? As it stands your post is completely pointless Keith
