    A pedant writes, they would most likely take it it to Odense where their own own version of the nrm is.

    Until When post Brexit, and rebuilding our navy, army airforce, and invaded much of our former colonies, invade Odense, recapture our looted engines ans steel their collection, return them to the UK, and sell them as war booty.

    It's a real shame, if only due to that lustrous shade of green ... somehow, far more attractive than the LNER hue. That Worsdell 'rail crusher' back in steam would be a truly wonderous sight to behold.

    In purely subjective matters, I'm never wrong! :D

    This is fake news. I'd heard he's going to re-gauge it and put it on the main line.

    No need to re-gauge, just build a converter wagon as used in the Guinness brewery
