    Just checked the Facebook page for Steam Dreams and they've also posted the press release about 71000, but the bit about hauling Saphos railtours has been removed (but is still on the LSL and BR Standard Class 8 Locomotive Trust posts), so presumably 71000 will be part of the Steam Dreams roster.

    Just out of interest with LSL are 34046's and 46100's tickets due to run out soon? 46100 returned in 2015 and 34046 was 2016, if I recall, so are they good to go on a full 10 year ticket and come out in 2025 and 2026?

    The Duke is an air brake loco and it makes sense to me for it to be based somewhere that will capitalise on that especially now that VT has declared its hand to go GWR. It is of course a Class 8 and that will help to minimise the impact of the current arrangement with stock and air con/diesel.
