    Good that it will finally have a rolling chassis again. Might i ask where it's spare boiler is being kept, you know the A4 one and if any one knows which A4 did it originally come off in the first place.

    Good stuff, hopefully that will mean that 71000 can still be our star guest at the Locomotion Steam Gala on 20/21 September...
