    Outline plans for celebrations in 2025. No big cavalcade this time by the looks of it, but a temporary exhibition shed at Stockton and regular steam hauled shuttles between there and Shildon should be interesting.

    God knows why they are not using Heighington to park up engines for display given that it could be Shildon works... part 2... a la 1975 type thing...

    The idea of shuttles is interesting and I can only see the pop up shed being done at Tees yard. Logistics could be interesting if your using steam. Presume top and tail shuttles but handing over a full timetable to a 'plandamf' style operation will be very problematic for loadings and to keep time, given loads of people are likely to descend on the place.
