    None whatsoever. Last I heard, it was due for weighing and various bits requiring setting. It will presumably need a spell of gentle running-in.

    No it's the new funding arrangement; whilst stationary the steam generator still works and provides power TO the National Grid - and gets paid for it ! :)

    Agreed on the stunning picture. Hopefully it will not be too long before we see it on the main line and in so doing should hopefully remind everyone of what a magnificent loco this class was in its original condition. And quite a performer to boot where the exhaust modification was definitely an improvement.
