    A vehicle I often get asked about! 861 was apparently on a plate. It went to Mid Hants Railway in 2003 I think (?) and I believe it is now a steam loco tender? Again, any more news on its history or present state would be welcome...

    Hi Ben:

    Yes this vehicle has been de-converted to a stem tender again. Evidence has shown that this ran with LSWR S15 510 before ending up behind an N15.

    Happily it will be running behind Urie S15 30506 with a new tender tank in less than a couple of years time.

    Kindest regards
