I thought Dan was after an A Class, or did he turn towards the X after PN fobbed him off?

Temporary fencing now set up around the locos when I went past today, not sure how long that has been in place but certainly wasn't there last time I went past the locos. Not long to go now I suspect.

He is saving his pocket money for an S Class. Having taken his metal detector to Mount Newport without success, he has decided to settle for a Diesel version.
