Other than that, not much to add by way of a story. The run over was fine with no problems other than a slightly warm crosshead but that was cold on its final check at York. The locomotive itself was turned on the new turntable at York, which has replaced the old triangle, and is now ready for its turn on the Wansbeck railtour on 29 March.
