    I believe the LYR trust are moving it to Bury, to take up an offer of covered accommodation to aid the restoration..

    The shed that 80097 is being restored in has been mentioned

    I've no connection with either organisation, but the above has been mentioned in print

    Haven't they got 46428 waiting to move in as soon as 80097's out?

    I'm sure there's been a recent NP thread on it, with some comment by the owners. Way back in 1980 in the run up to Rocket 150 I recall the seeing paintwork being touched up in the open in Haworth yard but oddly enough 24th May 1980 is the only occasion I can recall seeing it in steam so something to look forward to.
