    That is very impressive and excellent news. Had a run behind this loco last year and knew its ticket was up soon, I must admit I thought it would be a while before I saw it again, glad I was mistaken! Any chance of a mini steam gala with the soon to return black 5 and 46512?!

    The bottom end was overhauled not that long ago, so wouldn't have needed much work doing I'd have thought.

    Looks like the work has picked up pace since the large parts left Bridge of Dun. Work groups have been working at both sites on various parts. 2022 is plausible but I'd safely say 2023.

    As we can see in their pway blog and signalling blog, the siding to morley hut is actually finished.
    In addition the disused footbridge at the interim station of Aviemore got dismantled. They don't right now, how this bridge will be reeused.
    Here you can find their exiting blogs:

    I actually wonder whether they will also remove the old platform and use the space to remodel the whole yard in Aviemore?

    Cheers

    Saw a comment on the Aviemore Engine Shed page that the longer term plan for the old platform space is to remodel with a loop and new shed entrance.
