2013 South Devon Railway - Buckfastleigh - GWR 49xx Hall Class - 4920 Dumbleton HallThe South Devon Railway is home to 49xx Hall class 4920 Dumbleton Hall.  The locomotive last steamed in 1999 and has since been awaiting funds to be raised in the order of £250,000-£300,000.  The latest reports from the railway media are that donations have reached a level at which it’s overhaul could begin as early as 2016, although this is depending on progress of other locomotives in the queue at Buckfastleigh, with a realistic start being 2018 (when it is  scheduled to begin.)
