    Nice to see you back. Was having a bit of a sniff around the old girl last time I was across. Have they laid all the track in the sidings yet?

    They renewed the bed and sleepers down to that siding while I was away, the siding is to be the main line.

    the boiler is from an andrew barclay 040 No17, it is on hold at the moment (long story) we have another barclay 040 No29 which is currently undergoing restoration, we have just bought new boiler tubes for her and have had the NDT and boiler inspectors in, a couple of wee jobs to do and then we will get busy re-tubing her and get her hydraulic and steam test done, then it will be into service.
