Good evening,

Tonight we are pleased to report that yesterday 35006 Peninsular & Oriental S.N. Co, passed her formal steam test with her insurance company. She has had a few trial steamings of her boiler over the last few months, enabling a number of minor niggles to be identified and corrected.This is a very significant milestone as the society can now operate the pressure vessel whenever they want (at the discretion of the GWSRs boiler responsible officer). This also means her 10 year boiler ticket is now live and ticking away. As a fan of the Merchant Navy class and a shareholder in this locomotive I am understandably delighted and my congratulations go out to Maurice Hastie and his team based at Toddington.
