Curious, there's been nothing in the Railway [or any other] Press about the "return" to service of the Great Marquess. She was withdrawn back in 2015 on the North Yorkshire Moors. They made a tentative offer to repair the loco for what remained of it's "10 year" ticket, I think there are/were problems with the firebox leading to her early withdrawal. The Marquess then spent the following 2-3 years in store at Grosmont, before leaving via New Bridge [Pickering] on the back of a wagon for Bo'ness on the Bo'ness & Kinneil and ultimately John Cameron's proposed Museum on his farm.
