Mike comments (28th Feb. 2013): "Today we shunted Gervase out of the shed at Great Central Railway so it could go on the pit to be weighed and have its springs adjusted. We will leave Gervase with her clothes off for ease of access and any final adjustments when we steam her up for test running. Nearly there - at last!"
