    Is there a plan to return her to Coal then??

    I have heard a few suggestions of this over the years for one or the other to be put back on coal, it would be nice to see her back like that.

    Really good to hear that the band aids that have been fitted over the years are being rectified too. Seems really sensible to do that at overhaul.

    I know for a fact that one or two recent overhauls at other places have failed to do this, I think this will only cost in due course.

    Congratulations to all involved, in my opinion the best looking narrow gauge loco's ever built. Simply delightful.

    The new smoke box does have a spark arrestor fitted and oil is getting very expensive these days, but finishing the loco off is more of a priority.
