    Wouldn't care to speculate. However if anyone doubts the engineering expertise available at 10A then perhaps they should reflect on the fact that both Tornado and Flying Scotsman have visited within a short space of time.

    Well worth it if it is going to run again at ELR rather than rusting at York.

    I've read The ELR are owed some running days as payment for something so it would be nice to have some kind of final fling for 60009.

    Its not going to be much & let's hope its something after Boris's speech on Monday............
