    The manual as supplied to railways that Swanage Railway Bulleid pacifics run on states 'a well filled back end'.

    So back to the T9...

    It will be interesting to see if 30120 gets another overhaul in 2020 and remains at Swanage longer term.

    The end of the boiler ticket seems a sensible time to run the agreement to for now though. The situation can then be accessed and both the NRM and Swanage railway can decide if they are agreeable to another overhaul.

    Odd that the T9 still hasn't been to Okehampton. Akin to not taking a Manor to the Cambrian or, a Brit to Norwich or, a B1 to Harwich Parkeston, all of which have happened, amongst many other homecomings over the years.

    A WELL FILLED BACK END :eek::eek:
    As regards bulleids i always found that a saucer shaped fire worked best , plenty under the door then sides and front , with the middle left light you certainly needed to keep the bottom of the sythons well covered
