The West Shed, where 6233 Duchess of Sutherland is currently based, has announced that there is potential for 6233 Duchess of Sutherland to operate some tours with Locomotive Services Ltd.
The news comes as Jeremy Hosking’s BR 9F No. 92212 recently arrived at the West Shed for overhaul by the PRCLT.
Recently operating at the Mid Hants Railway between 2013 and 2019, the PRCLT has said: “We are very happy to have secured this additional contract work, which will be another important source of income for us in these very challenging times.”
4 engineers are now back at work, 2 will be working on 5551 ‘The Unknown Warrior’ and 2 will be working on 92212.
Flagship mainline locomotive, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland, is not planned to be operating any mainline tours for 2020, but the PRCLT has announced that they entered negotiations with Locomotive Services Ltd over the hire of 6233 to operate some tours in 2021 for Saphos Trains / Locomotive Services Ltd.
6233 Duchess of Sutherland is currently operated by West Coast Railways.
