at least a major step part way,  now all that's needed is to get it running

I was sort of joking about this a few weeks ago with one of the Swanage Railway volunteers who is a member of our N gauge Area group.

I wonder why the NRM transfered ownership to Swanage rather than loaned her ..................is there some financial implication for one or the other organisation ?   :roll: :roll:

Not seen anything as yet, quite a lot of speculation on RMWEB and some heritge sites.

From what I've read "between the lines" NRM are running out of space, partly it seems because they have added refreshment and memorabilia sales within the display area presumably to make a profit from them as they can not charge admission.

As for "why the Swanage?" The Adams 4-4-0s were frequent visitors well into the 1930s and possibly during WW2, the last were withdrawn about 1946. The only other heritage line that might have seen them regularly would probably be the mid Hants (Watercress line)

I don't have any problems with it being at the Swanage Mike - or anywhere else for that matter.  What I do wonder about is why they've given it away.  Museums usually loan exhibits to other venues, they don't "give" them - i.e. "transfer ownership".

563 must have a financial value so why would NRM give that money to Swanage rather than simply lend them the locomotive - for as long as Swanage wants it, if necessary.....................?

It looks s though 563 has been stuck under that red Tarpaulin at KIngs Cross since its appearance in "The Railway Children" which suggests the NRM had nowhere to put it; the NRM have 3 other SR or constituents 4-4-0s LSWR T9, SECR D and SR Schools and the Ex LSWR T3 is not as "iconic" as the T9 so rather than pay for it to be stored they let it go "to a good home". A loan would have implied they may still have some financial  responsibility & could get it returned at some time possibly when they would be less able to afford the upkeep and storage.

Anyway, I ain't complaining!!!!
