    To anyone wondering how the M&GN Society's LNER B12, 8572 is getting along, perhaps this photo, courtesy of the Loco Club might keep you interested...

    Will look good on the teak. Get it to the SVR and NYMR as well for their teak sets.

    Would love to see it back on the SVR! I have vague memories of it visiting late nineties/early 2000's when in BR black. Lovely looking loco.

    So odd, I was sure i remembered it being in mixed traffic black...must be my memory playing tricks! Great bit of footage at the end here of 8572 pulling away from sterns...cracking sound!

    Maybe confusing it with former resident 61994 'The Great Marquess'?

    No, no its not that. I've got many fond memories of the K4 on the valley but it was definitely 61572 i was thinking of here. I think i can be excused, I was 6 at the time!

    The pictures on that page show it in LNER green but 2857 is talking about it having visited the SVR when painted BR black.
