BRING ’EM HOME

Steam Railway (UK) - - MAILBAG -

With LNER ‘A4’ No. 4489

Do­min­ion of Canada and ‘Terrier’ No. 54 Wad­don now ef­fec­tively in cold store and po­ten­tially be­ing read­ied for dis­posal and pos­si­ble repa­tri­a­tion to the UK, surely this op­por­tu­nity to bring these lo­co­mo­tives home must be taken with both hands.

The lo­co­mo­tives are com­plete but will re­quire full over­hauls. Could these engines be placed in the care of the Sev­ern Val­ley, Great Cen­tral, Nene Val­ley, North York­shire Moors or Blue­bell rail­ways, as they would need to be un­der cover prior to and af­ter restora­tion?

Let’s bring these engines home. It will be ex­pen­sive, but worth it. S.G. Pipe, Chelms­ford
