After many years in open storage at Tyseley, an agreement was reached in February 2018 for us to take 50033 on a 3 year loan with a view to restoring the loco and getting it operational. It has not worked a train since 2004, but an extensive appraisal has already been carried out and work has already started on recommissioning the loco. 

The intention is to have the loco running in time for the 50th Anniversary event at the Severn Valley Railway in October 2018. We will update this page as time allows, but for the latest info do find us on Facebook.
