There is an excellent series of photographs and video of Clan Line moving in steam for the first time in nearly two years in the news section of our website with the Chief Engineer at the regulator.

Our CME reports light test runs 'as a complete success', Clan Line is now being prepared to enter the paint shop next week. Two loaded test runs will then take place round the Crewe, Chester, Shrewsbury circuit and subject to no problems arising she will return to her home base at Stewarts Lane 48 hours later.
