    Also there's the limiting factors of the 60mph max speed and the lack of air brakes.

    The Jacobite is pretty much a closed shop and wasn't 76079 more restricted load wise in any case?
    Maybe 76084 and 61306 might do some work together for Steam Dreams?
    Norwich from NNR?
    Possibly the Cambrian if it is ever able to be resurrected?
    Early season lighter loaded Dalesmans?
    Lines up in the north east jointly with the K1 perhaps.
    Far north as part of Great Britain tours?
    Assisting loco instead of a diesel?
    Plus the advantage of being able to move between heritage lines without road transport.

    I suggest Norwich from the NNR is most likely, speed in Anglia isn't too much of an issue away from the GEML, and loads restricted by the stupidly short headshunt at Cromer anyway.

    Maybe the other bit here and there when opportunity plays it's part, but I find it hard to believe you'd certify a loco for that alone.

    I'm not sure that I would expect 76084 to be doing a lot of main line running. I'm pretty sure it has a deal tying it to the North Norfolk for next summer for the Cromer runs, so that only leaves it available for half the year and rules out Jacobites, Scarborough Spas etc.

    Did they make money with the necessary reduced loadings is the key?

    Looking at some videos 8 seemed to be the maximum.
