Well thats what the manual for Manston stated, anyway a long way from the T9 topic.
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
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
hopefully by then 563 will be entering service, 31874 will replace 31806 30053 should hopefully be nearing a come back into service so hopefully an appeal to overhaul the T9 should be successful

"A well filled back end, keep the bottom of the siphons covered - plenty under the door" Just going to wipe that particular video from my memory cells..... very funny tho'.
I'm struggling on this, a bit, too!
That diagrams not right! The coal should be falling out the door!
