Nunney Castle, restored to main line status in May, And Earl of Mount Edgcumbe, due back to main line status next month (October 2008). Which leaves Defiant, at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre. Caerphilly Castle at the GWR Museum, Steam in Swindon, and Thornbury Castle, at Crewe, awaiting restoration.
