I'd say the rotting carcass of 1177 lies out the back of Redbank... :biggrin

That's a shame.  Does the ARHS own it or a private person?

Anyone want to come and give 1179 some TLC?  We could use a hand getting a new battery and then there's the paintwork, oh and some bodywork, aaaand some electrical... Plenty to keep you interested  Big Grin  :bozo

She sounds awesome when you fire her up tho'

Can you get her into the shed ? I wouldn't paint that loco out in the open.

If there is enough interested parties we will make space in the shed

Regarding the batteries it is the usual 4 cell 8 V batteries that weigh 80 kg each. There are 8 of them in total (making for a total of 64V). Rather costly for new ones as well Sad
