    So its the season to review what will be working on UK Std Gauge heritage railways in 2019.

    To kick off - SVR - newly returned to traffic - 75069
    newly restored (having not yet worked in the preservation era) - none
    due to go out of traffic - none

    Maybe but that was pre 1994 - the point of the thread was to review what's changing in 2019.

    The original post does not say 75069 had not run in this era, that reference has "none" as its note, however wrongly posted its a nice shot.

    You actually said having not yet worked in the preservation era but it certainly has

    I think you are misreading the post. It is three categories on three lines:

    Returning in 2019
    Steaming for the first time
    Last year in ticket.

    So Watercress might be:

    Returning: Can Pac
    Steaming for first time 499
    Last year in ticket 9f

    (This is a hypothetical example not that I am claiming this is what will happen in 2019)

    I'm pretty sure Whillan Beck and River Esk returned this year and Katie returned last year?

    Nice photo! No wonder the crew are leaning out, they'll need a lungful or two of fresh air after that load of clag inside the tunnel!

    KESR: Newly returned - 32678 Knowle (subject to conditions).
    Newly overhauled - Too soon for 4253, so none.
    Going out of service - 376 Norwegian. Catch it while you still can!
     
  20. How many years is Maunsell's overhaul likely to take?
    (Subtext: how long have I got to raise the money to sponser a repaint of the pair of them into authentic Ashford Works livery?) :)
