Nice photos, must upload the ones I took on Monday when Dave and I were there. Weather certainly looks nicer.

Andy,
There are still a few things need to be sorted out before Bob moves. Not least of which will be dismantling him ready to go.

147 is going to be used as a source of spares in the event of anything breaking when Bob is taken to RAFM Cosford. After thatit will be stripped of all usable spares to support our runner 241.

Any news on how much of BOB is making the journey west?

And what are the long term plan for '147? Will she stay on static and parts removed as and when?

I don't know any specific details of 808's move. Like everything else so far it is a question of waiting.
Once the move is completed though 147 will have all usable parts, with the exception of the front section, removed before the remains are converted to baked beans tins.
The front section will then be on its way to a new home.
