I was at the Barrow Hill roundhouse a few years ago and the Brighton Belle was there in the early stages of restoration. I've restored cars before but not a train but I see that the process is similar except everything is a lot heavier. Also the Tornado, Bittern and Mallard were there as well as some others.
