    What about a couple of locos recently overhauled and undergoing fine tuning?
    78022 and 34072.

    I was going to say 78022 or maybe 70013. Those are my two 50p bets.

    78022 is indeed in green, and while I can't speak for Keighley, I would have thought they would rather have it run in at home and debut at their own gala rather than at a different railway?

    Perhaps the green 7 is Britannia, having recently been dropped onto her wheels, may give suitable reason to think that running in may not be that far off....

    The '70000' thread in Steam traction reports it was spotted in steam earlier today.

    Would be great if it is 7029, I guess Tyseley have made next to no money this year. I am doubtful though!

    Likewise. As you say though, these must have been a difficult few months for Tyseley. When was the last time a Tyseley loco visited a heritage railway not just on a mainline tour out of interest?

    True but L92 does nothing anyway. Has it's mainline certificate expired? They seem to prefer 9466 to partner 9600 over their own loco.

    70000 reported in Heritage Railway (Issue 245 which hit the doormat today) to be moving by road to the S.V.R. for "Initial testing" before main line proving runs are undertaken.

    Bang goes me thinking Tallylyn No7 Tom Rolt! Have to say though this realationship between LSL and the SVR can only be a good thing, maybe in a few years time we could see a tie up with LSL and something from the SVR using the crossover at Kiddy to go back on the big railway? I.e. A Manor back to the Cambrian, Hintedy Hint, Hint. :):);)
