    Hi Guys I recall this loco was at South Tynedale for sometime and apparently she has been sold to the Lancashire mining museum?

    Does anyone know if she is still there or was she sold back to a new location in Europe

    Thanks William it is one I need to keep an eye on just in case, she would be an ideal loco for North Devon to be honest, but with things as they are right now I can't possible suggest that he asks about taking her there.
