The Big Goods Engine bows out, after a 6 month extension of the boiler certificate, this finally expired on New Years Eve 2021. The loco went out on a high note with a week of hauling 6 coaches on the Mince Pie Specials, even with two super heaters blocked off. A film star in the making, the loco will also feature in the Railway Children Return, filmed in the summer of 2021 and set for release in summer 2022.
The loco is planned to be put on display in Oxenhope Exhibition Shed.
