    If I was a betting man I think I would go for that standard tank that came back into service this year. The one that used to be owned by swanage. Lol. Tis good fun all this guessing game!

    That is probably the most sensible comment ever made on NP, I commend your philosophy!

    76079 ran around 17,000 miles on the NYMR last year and is owned by the Trust. They are not in desperate need of the money and there would have to be agreement from the Trust Board for it to be sold - unlikely, I would suggest and I certainly...

    The whole hobby is pointless if you take that to it's logical conclusion. Think of it as a bunch (sic) of lads in the pub discussing it. There doesn't have to be a point to it, it's just of general interest to many

    In the rabid speculation that has characterised this thread, has any class 4 loco not been mentioned? :D

    I suppose the question is did said loco come to market, most locomotive sales tend to be purely off market affairs?

    Maybe. I always thought if 43106 ever came on the market the M&GN Society would be the first in line...

    An NNR supporter has bought the shareholding and the General Manager of NNR has joined the 76084 company board as a director to represent the purchasers interest. I would suggest it is staying at NNR [emoji3]

    I like this thought from Mr Can. And, I imagine there is actually very little choice for most heritage railways when it comes down to it on the day - more often than not, a no-brain choice of one loco that is available and best for the job....

    The question of platform length is a valid point and would be even if there wasn't a shedload of photographic evidence for WC/BoB locos on one coach trains 'down west' in days of yore! Remember when HK looked absolutely massive when it was just a...

    I'm surprised that a moderator has completely misunderstood the purpose of these discussions. It's like a chant to aid meditation. By repeating the same thing over and over while emptying one's mind of all conscious thought, it's possible to...

    You know Paul one thing I don't think I or anyone that I know of has thought to ask you yet, if we were to follow your way and thinking and logic, just what would we do with the big chuffers? If we were to just purely focus on using the smaller,...

    To me, the Britannias are the best looking locomotives out there.
