London Midland & Scottish Railway 4-6-2 No. 6233 46233 'Duchess of Sutherland'Posted by: Russell Newman on 2018-01-18 05:47:40.95
Work on 46233 "Duchess of Sutherland" is going to take a bit longer then first thought. As on further investigation, it has been found that 21 of the 40 flue tubes are cracked. So the Princess Royal Locomotive Trust have decided to take the opportunity to carry out additional major work on the boiler to enable 46233 to gain a new boiler certificate now, rather than waiting until it is needed in 2021. The Duchess should be completed and ready for action around June/ July 2018. By then the locomotive will be repainted into LMS Crimson Lake livery as 6233 again.

British Railways 4-6-2 No. 70000 'Britannia'Posted by: Russell Newman on 2018-01-16 12:23:15.187
No. 70000 "Britannia" is on its way for a comeback to the mainline this year. The locomotive was withdrawn from service two years ago following some vibration issues whilst running on the mainline which prevented her continued operation. Since then work has progressed on her axleboxes and frames, reversing and valve gear, springs and bogies among with many other things. All three of 70000s tender axles and the trailing truck axle have now returned to Crewe. This follows the replacement of the roller bearings and completion of tyre turning. No. 70000 is expected if all goes well to back on the mainline later this year.

United States Navy 0-6-0T No. 3Posted by: Matthew Gardner on 2018-01-11 16:35:33.3
I heard from the operator of the tourist railroad I volunteer at that the owner of this restaurant wants this locomotive, and the two coaches that it is with gone, and he is going to scrap them if there is no taker. He is listing them as a pack for $50,000, considering that the engine has run in recent years, and everything is in good shape. He is going to only get $7,000 for the engine if scrap comes in. So, anyone interested in a tank engine?

After long man hours regauging R766 from the 5ft 3inch broad gauge to the 4ft 8 1/2 in standard gauge and other work the locomotive is now ready to start testing on the standard gauge mainlines of New South Wales and Victoria. But before that can happen the loco needs to be fitted with a ICE Radio unit for it to run on the mainlines out in that part of the world. So the Hunter Valley Railway Trust has started appeal to raise the funds needed to buy and fit a ICE Radio unit to R766. If funds are raised the loco could be running this year?
