It is not unservicable so with work it could run again, unlike engines which due to cracked frames, damaged boilers, etc. cannot be made to run again.  It probably won't due, as noted, to the costs of bringing it back to running condition and costs of insurance.  A pity as it is an elegant looking engine with an exciting whistle.
