Pointed out elsewhere is the SVR website advertises the Autumn Steam Gala for her post-overhaul debut Gala, so she will miss the Spring one in March.

Work on this loco has now pretty much come to a halt as they are waiting for the boiler to be completed which seems to keep being delayed. I understand from speaking to those who are more 'in the know' than I am that there is still a fair bit to do on the boiler before it can even be tested, so we may have to wait until early-mid summer before we see this loco return. Any thoughts of it being ready for the spring gala disappeared long ago I am afraid!

I have been reliably informed that the boiler has now been filled with water.

The August working members newsletter, available from the public side of SVRLive, indicates that an appearance at the Autumn Gala is not a likely event. However we will do our best to wheel the loco out in whatever state it is in to demonstrate the fruits of our labour. We are all confident that this will be a superb addition to the fleet but we are not going to rush the final tasks only to cause ourselves long term issues.

shows superheater elements going in now that the boiler is back in the frames [not just for a trial fitting this time!].
