    Dont think he was saying that you did ask about the rumours more that he has heard several different stories so he would rather not post them here as he is not sure which if any is accurate.

    Indeed, my appologies James, I worded my post badly, what I meant was I had heard several rumours which I was not prepared to post untill I knew that they were accurate.

    Given the boiler repair was carried out at Bridgnorth I would say very likely teething probs to be rectified prior to going to Bury. My parents saw it on back of low loader last week in Bridgnorth last week. Given the line is now severed at Arley and the usual unloading point at Kidder couldn't therefore be used, i'd imagine unloading it at Bridgnorth wasn't easy space wise....
