Given it's all terribly exciting, I'd wager this is probably a more appropriate thread for the many pages of foam forthcoming, than the "scrapping" thread, which tends to upset the Victorians. Wink

They were transferred down on BM2 services, one after the other. X50 has been there for a couple of days, X48 should have arrived Friday (?).

Does anybody know what Pacific National have transferred them for? Is it to actually enter them back into service, or to pilfer parts from them to keep the other X class alive a bit longer?

I personally can't see them going to the trouble of transferring them half way across the country just to send them to the scrappists.
