    Is Braunton the next in line? It will great considering her reliability 2013-2014 was pretty good.

    There is an update from 16th July on the Icons of Steam web site about both Royal Scot and Braunton...

    http://www.iconsofsteam.com/2015/07/news/893/

    Royal Scot is about to move from the Heritage Centre to the Diesel Depot. Expected to return to steam in September.
    Braunton has slipped to the end of 2015. More boiler work required than expected.

    Shame about the slippage. Means it won't be able to appear as 34052 for the Battle of Britain 75th anniversary commemoration.
    Hope they get an untroubled spell in traffic once it's complete again though.

    Anyone got the details for Braunton's tender wheelbase and capacity as it stands at the moment please?

    Need to know if its on a long 6000 gallon wheelbase or the shorter one similar to the 5100 gallon size.
