Howdy, i was browinsg through some old vidoe archives online, and i found a few wonderfull vidoes of WR Warship Hydraulic locomotives. I have always loved The Hydraulics, and im very enthusiastic about them, especially D1015.

MY question is, what future lies ahead for the two (??) preserved Warships :?:

Is there any chance of one of them returning ot NR along with its cousin 'Champ' to make a Hydraulic duo?? :idea:

Id love to see a Warship out and about on the mainline, where it belongs so i, and my 'generation' of enthusiasts' can get an idea of the might of these wonderfull locos!! :D

Just one thing, D1015 is a Western, not a Warship. As for D1015, it is used on railtours, but it isn't out very often.

Ok, 1) I know that 'Champ' is a Western/Wessie..and in that sentence, i was refering to the Hydraulic locos in general - Hymeks, Westerns and Warships.

2) I do know the differance, ty. Ive also been behind D1015 on a railtour, and if i didnt know what the '52s' where called befroe that (which i did :roll: ) considering the tour was called the 'The Western Heights', that wouldve kinda been a give-away..dont ya think!?? ;) :roll:

:idea: Shes used quite regularly on railtours, her last of 2005 being last week.

3) That post didnt answer my original question atall, in which i was asking for opinions/possiblites of the two presverved Warships (D821 and D832) ever returning to NR metals.... :idea:

Don't think D832 will do it again, shes happy enough pottering around here...D821 is unfortunately languishing at the Slack Valley, where, oddly, they don't have anyone passed to drive it! :shock:
