    Just backing up what others have said. Sad news about 60009 this evening. ELR Twitter feed posted this earlier:
    "Due to a new fault that was found upon returning to shed tonight, 60009 will now not feature throughout the rest of the Easter weekend". https://t.co/ZJhZilsWNR

    Hope that is a minor not a major problem as GBX in Scotland hinges on 60009 being available. At least it's in the right place to be fixed, hopefully.

    According to the "Works" appears to be a defect in outer firebox that needs investigation.

    That is a utter bargain by the way, when we got the chance at Mid Hants (which was subsequently cancelled), it was £600.07 ea, I will let you guess the loco that it was supposed to be with????

    Mr Riley has reported that they had a good day but 60009 is a bit short of 100%, they're going to do a bit of tweaking today.

    As the weather was so wet and miserable today I watched one of my 'steamy' films from 2007 :Yawn:.

    One of the nicest clips is of Union of South Africa running at speed through the Avon Valley at Freshford en route to Bath and Bristol.

    What a magnificent machine. I'm sure that many of us will miss N0.9 when her final run has taken place. <BJ>
