To start with, in February, a few original fittings from 2874 were acquired. Len successfully bid on 2874's smoke box number plate which came up for auction and your humble scribe swapped a cabside number plate from 2876 for one from 2874. A photo of the plates reattached to the loco even made it into Steam Railway magazine.
