Not sure what the future plans are, but today it was running with a plain black tender, 48773 smokebox numberplate and 48773 transfers on the cabsides.

Hi chaps,

Forgive my ignorance, but why is 48773/8233 going to disappear for a long long time? Is it about to join the back of the repair queue?

I heard the other day she won't be going out of traffic just yet - the aim is to keep her in traffic as long as the ticket allows (hopefully to 2008) Very Happy

your information is almost correct, but the real determining factors in how much longer the the black 8 stays in traffic are the state of the fire box and tyres, if the fire box falls below the leagle minimum standerd, or the tyres move, which is very likely how thin they are, then she is finished. Crying or Very sad

I noticed yesterday that 48773 now has the numbers on the cabside & also the lettering/transfer on the tender.
