    It was a joke, and yes originally I meant MSC no.70 without Lady A or Hamburg in mind - https://preservedbritishsteamlocomotives.com/hudswell-clarke-works-no-1464-msc-no-70-0-6-0t/

    I think the thing bugs me the most about the new livery/identity is the smokebox number plate. The 70 just looks far too small. Yes it's the same size letter but it looks lost at the front.

    I’ve said the same thing on another thread, have to agree it looks a little lost.

    That photo is just crying out for someone with photoshop skills to do a rendition of what No. 70 would look like in some other colour scheme - such as 1960s middle chrome green ...

    Ruddy Hell Tom, you mean you’d like to see a recreation of the ‘Wilcocks wet dream’ period? Besides it wouldn’t look right with that stock anyway! ;)

    I see that 4930 Hagley Hall has been clocking up some miles over the SVR. Pictures now appearing on Instagram. Well done to all involved in getting her back in action.

    I know good things come to those etc but it can't be far away from entering service now. Official launch at the ASG?

    Only it's 2nd period in action after it's initial seven year stint following restoration from Barry condition. Reading between the lines, this sounds to have been a very involved exercise.

    There is an excellent pictorial history of the overhaul on the Friends of Hagley Hall website, from 2014 up to yesterday's test run.

    Now it's almost time for 4930 to resume the SVR flagship role, it has been a long time coming but finally on the home straight. I look forward to ticking this one off as it is the only SVR based loco that has previously steamed in preservation that I haven't had yet!!!
