Mentioned within the Special Events section that the loco was in steam at Crewe on 22 August prior to a proposed light test run?

One text yesterday told me it was on a low loader for transport, another text today has told me it has arrived.

Seems here is the last place to find out anything.

      TN's show test runs tomorrow, I'd heard something a few days ago about some jobs needed doing on the loco. Anybody know if it will be on loaded tests Monday, if not - when?

      Tomorrow's runs have been cancelled while the loco owners do some work on one of the crossheads which has been running warm. Other days still on as far as is known at the moment.

      Finally got to see it in action. Went to Kidderminster yesterday afternoon to find it had run in the morning, but was not running as expected during the time I was there. Back again today and saw it arrive and depart twice, with 6 coaches and a Western at t'other end.

      It's a long video, but you can see it arrive, twice. Once at the beginning, then again at about 16 minutes.
