awaiting overhaul at Southall, last steamed in the early 2000's, will be restored to mainline running, currently finding somewhere for overhaul.35028 'Clan Line'* -
Still among the most reliable of mainline engines, she is currently undergoing repairs at Crewe (?) because of her recent injector problems.35029 'Ellerman Lines' -
sectioned exhibit at the National Railway Museum, will never steam.*
35028 was of course never a barry resident but i've included her for completeness.
3 (nearing 4) out of 11 having steamed isn't massively impressive i will admit but compare it to the light pacifics which so far out of 20 we have had 15 of them steam at some point. Out of the remaining 5, two are owned by SLlt with one (34053 'Sir Keith Park) expected to steam next year with the other ones restoration starting after. One is under slow restoration at the Avon Valley which just leaves 34051 on static display at the NRM & 34073 failing to find a buyer. If 18 out of 20 steam that is very impressive.
