    Cadbury No.1 I believe is at Tyseley. (not sure about is current state however) But they would make a nice pair. There is also a Ruston Hornsby former Rowntree loco extant as well.

    Having fired "Littleton" a number of times on the GCR, I'd be interested to know how much work would be required to get her back steaming. I suspect that the short answer is "a lot". I can't recall a heavy overhaul at Foxfield or Loughborough.

    Am hoping to visit for the first time next week, just wondered if anyone would be able to advise on which loco is likely to be running?

    Many Thanks.

    It might be best to call the office on 01179 325538 to find out which loco is rostered :)
