The P3 has returned from the East Lancs Railway to NYMR. A RHS injector problem has been resolved by replacing the valve nose.  The P3 worked the Lambton Worm on 26 June and will visit the Weardale Railway for the reopening trains.  Q6 is progressing well towards rewheeling and good progress is being made with the boiler.  The K1 attended Railfest at York prior to travelling to Fort William with the B1.  A hot RHS trailing coupled wheel axlebox was repaired following a return of the engine to Carnforth and considerable effort.  Q7 is not at NRM Shildon.  Martin Lloyd writes a moving obituary for Martin Pearson.
