    A preserved ( or even national network ) class 73 for 20001 or 20002.
    There used to be a spare booster set somewhere in Strawberry Hill Depot.....

    I’d swap about half of the surviving Bullied light Pacific’s for B1s, K1s and K3s to bolster the Eastern survivors

    Well two Brits survived and they are both running so you are being greedy. Personally I'd be happy to swap a couple of Bulleids for a pair of working V2s.

    Don't see why we're being greedy when there are so many Bulleids surviving, just trying to even up the numbers a bit.

    Personally, I was saving (other peoples') Bulleids for when the real rarities emerge from the candle lit end of my grey matter, but OK .... so here's a question: how's about swapping Barry inmates for those at Risca, Cohen's, Cashmores etc. etc. That'd still mean just the stuff that lasted until the final rundown, but would even up the odds a bit! :)

    Out of interest, if we had a choice over which scrapyard to be what Barry was, would Barry have been the best choice? In terms of both absolute numbers, and variety in both size and region of loco?

    Ooh ... interesting. One in the north-east, I suspect. Then we could all moan about the dearth of GW & SR locos in preservation! :D

    Could I trade a couple of 28xx at Barry for Ark Royal and the Clas 22 that went there? (Yes I have a massive thing for 1st generation diesels)
