I'd like to think so, I really would, but in reality there's no point restoring (to working order) something that's going to drain a groups' resources (unless of course you've a wealthy backer!). Think about it, SLNCR 0-6-4T No.27 "Lough Erne" is quite significant as the last new conventional steam loco to be supplied to an Irish railway. But it is probably too big to steam (economically) at the DCDR, yet to small (coal bunker wise anyway) to be of much use on the RPSI's mainline operations. So, while it would be lovely to see it run, and it's a very important loco, it's unlikely (I suspect) to be restored anytime soon. I know what you mean about being uncomfortable about the term 'business case', but I think the reality is that preservation groups need to keep their heads above the water when it comes to money matters, it's quite the same as making a profit for profit's sake. Excellent news. If this goes ahead, and I hope it does, I think we should all be very grateful to those MRSI members who have offered to donate money towards this project, after all no organisation is under any obligation to do anything at the end of the day.
