Dear All,

I read that 15F 3007 arrived in the UK at Immingham on the east coast this week, and was moved northwards to Glasgow by road low-loader from my local firm Heanor Haulage over the last 2 days (Weds/Thurs).

The loco is initially on display in George Square in the city of its birth, Glasgow, to launch a £5 million appeal for funds for the Riverside Transport Museum. 3007 is to be restored and displayed there. The balance of the Museum's cost will be met by the National Lottery's Heritage Fund and by Glasgow City Council (Heritage Fund grants are usually conditional on matching some income from other sources).

There is a nice little photo-report attached to the BBC's news item here and also a video report if you can get it to work (I couldn't).
