Well priscilla arrived at my work today at 2 o'clock, had a long journey but well worth it, couple people to thank is stw for making it possible for me to own a great engine and Lynn for doing a great job of finishing her off. I haven't had time to have a look at her yet but I have trusted Lynn to do a good job and that's what has happened. Jon boy services from Slough has been great from start to finish on taking her all that way and bringing her back. Can't wait to have priscilla out on Saturday and Sunday for the first time, she won't be in steam for a few days as I want to be on own to have a play. so thank u everybody for making this dream possible. Very Happy Very Happy

Well the engine was out on show this weekend and I had a lot of questions and comments, so glad to have her out, she wasn't in steam but I'm hoping to do that this next weekend.

I like mine a bit tighter. 


It does bed in and stays snug longer.
