    Yeah it does now I think about. 45212 has been there before as has 60103 Flying Scotsman. Odd that it has to go that far from Fort William to go to the wheel lathe.

    Given issues with Azumas, I wonder if Hitachi have the appetite or capacity for contract work

    By Carnforth standards is 6ft Large?
    Any smaller and its only fit for the 8f , and Diesel/ carriage/ carrying wheels ( though they do have plenty of those)

    No idea, there is a suggestion online that 60103's were done there last year, albeit I suppose the issue is in that case whether it was the drivers or just the truck/bogie?

    So if 44871's taken over the Jacobite duties, where's 45212 headed once its' wheels are sorted? Back to KWVR?
