    That is truly a sight to behold! Hopefully this beauty will be deposited somewhere visible over the weekend [subtle hint].

    Not too accessible, mind or I'm taking her home! :)

    I was told at recent Gala that 4953 would be visiting the Nene Valley Railway when fully tested at GCR - not sure when this might be however?

    I should perhaps have been more specific, as I was aware of Witherslack's black phase in the 90s - When was the last time we saw an "unmodified" Hall in black?

    I'm fairly certain Pitchford Hall is the first in preservation.

    Technically that’s a Modified Hall. Don’t think unless anyone can correct me there has been a 49xx in black.

    Haha yes I hadn’t read on in the thread as I said before I’m quite sure it’s a preservation first.
