Sorry - forgot the G5 :-)
There are a lot of new build projects around but the P2 and G5 look to be the next LNER designs to steam.

Lottery funding has been lined up for the J21. I don't think actual work has started but my understanding is that site prep has (making space for it, etc).

Also not sure of the exact status of Blue Peter, but understand it is "next in line" or something like that, with some minor prep started (stripping of fittings, etc)

Another one I forgot was A3 Flying Scotsman!

The A2 is beyond that stage now, although I haven't heard how it's progressing a new middle cylinder block was cast over a year ago from the A1 pattern.

Sawdust.
