Default 34067 'TANGMERE' Any news

Hi all,

Any news on the repairs and problems Tangmere has (34067).

This wonderful engine, the only one of its class on the mainline has been out of action nearly all this year.

RTC have even cancelled this Sat tour from Eastleigh-Minehead via Weymouth as Tangmere is unavalilable and nothing else to sub it.

Any ideas when its back, and what is wrong with it????

Perhaphs it was the Bincombe Bank unassisted climb last August which busted it??

Err, no. This was a boiler issue as far as im aware, and probably just a result of how reguarly she is used. I doubt very much there'll be any 'news' until someone phots her in steam outside Carnforth - as im sure WCRC would say, she'll be ready when she's ready.
