Anyone know if this loco will be in steam this weekend at all? Or even which end of the line she is based?? I always miss her when she visits so would like to try and see her this weekend if possible!

88 will be in steam on friday 21st and the re opening weekend.. The loco was moved to Bewdley to day from Kidderminster so i am guessing it will be based here, loco is facing boiler to Bridgnorth.
