Guess a good design and good engineering is timeless and lasts forever. Well done transport photo.

Thanks TWS, in reality it was built because some of us Brits are so nostalgic we couldn't bear the fact that in the 1960's we scrapped every engine of this type. It cost about £9m and that was raised mainly by public subscription.

There are plans and projects already underway for several types of engine that became "extinct" around that time.

Crazy huh?
