    I think that is what is actually happening.....I suspect the NRM want an offer of expertise plus financial clout, so a "joint" 5305/GCR bid for the overhaul would tick the right boxes for the NRM. But it will all come out with confidentiality/commercial/caveats in due course. As long as we get to keep 70013 steaming into the future....

    That would have been my first option - with notice on some of the changes needed to ensure that the paperwork and planning that was needed to be done, as obviously there has been a change in operations between previous agreements and the museums current working.

    There is over half a page in the latest Steam Railway about this work..........:Nailbiting:
    Presumably the NRM will admit something is happening when they get their "paperwork..."

    There has been a shunt in the Loughborough shed and more work is being done on 70013. I believe the boiler will be lifted in a couple of months time.
