Steam loco damage at slow speeds?

Post by 35005CP on Fri Jul 19, 2013 10:51 pm

Hi all,
I've been asked an interesting thing today and have been racking my brains to find some answers?? Does anyone know or can you think of a fault for a steam loco where it can still continue a run at a lower speed to conserve more damage?
Thanks in advance

I seem to remember one of the preserved Britannia's stopping somewhere and taking one set of valve gear down before proceeding at a slower speed but I can't remember what the cause was.
