After a longer than expected stay at New Bridge Pickering, the J27 was brought back to Grosmont by Ian Pearson, with fireman Keith Lowery. They were booked on the spare 10.00 o’clock path back Grosmont and arrived back at Grosmont just after 11 am. After taking water, filling the boiler and pushing the fire forward, all our tools were taken back to Deviation Shed workshop. The crew were told to leave the engine at the water column as there was a lot of shunting going on and the shed staff would put it away later. The K1 was on the wheel drops having a broken spring changed, and the T2 is apparently out of traffic at the moment, reportedly with a broken spring which happened on Sunday.
