Is it only me, or are others getting a little fed up of Geoff Courtney`s constant tone of reporting and bashing of the NRM re: 4472 Flying Scotsman?. This month he has sunk to a new level by implying that a renowned boiler repairer with a proven track record, has done a bum job on the rebuilding of the firebox. He states that the welds are having to be partly redone and that this will have a knock on effect to the completion of the overhaul. Maybe it will, but that is not the fault of the NRM and indeed the fact that the NRM have had a independant examination of the work carried out, shows that they are doing a good job of quality control. Bearing in mind though, the complexities of the work it should come as no surprise that a little correction work may have to be carried out. What i seem to find strange is that HR seem only too willing to give a former employee of Flying Scotsman PLC, a mouthpiece to try to cover up his former employers shortcomings in looking after 4472. By trying to discredit the NRM on their handling of the overhaul, he seems to be forgetting that if Flying Scotsman PLC and their team at Southall had looked after the boiler`s storage, properly, in the first place then a lot less work, would maybe have been required.
