ELR & Riley's Discussion Thread

Post by 35005CP on Sun Aug 25, 2013 2:17 am

Hi all,
Found a very good video on Youtube showing what is going on at the ELR. Seems a lot is or has been done to the Bulleids up there. Be good to see all these return to the Mainline in the future.... Does anyone know what the current state of play is and when the guys are hoping to get them complete by??

Anyway, here is the video;



Thanks

Andy

Yes, that was 35009 Shaw Saville and from what I understand she is pretty much complete....
I think Riley's plans are to overhaul all of them for mainline use?

Thanks Andy, for some reason I thought it was 34073 that was for sale.

249 Squadron? She was moved to the MHR I believe to Riley's also to use the Oil Bath and Valve Gear for Tangmere wasn't she Pete?
I haven't heard any latest news on her? Do you know anything or anyone else know anything? I believe 34073 is pretty much complete?

All I knew from the press etc was that there was an Original Light Pacific in an almost complete kit of parts for sale up in the northwest. I'm not sure where I came up with 34073 but as far as I know it never sold.

The ELR stock list gives her as "awaiting restoration"
