Ummm 1993? I recall that some of these had been restored, however I am no longer a member of the FEBT and don't think about it all that much. Unless I am missing something, the very dated Chris Coleman site is the best reference of EBT info. It would be nice if there was something else to check up with ongoing activities there.

Except now I see that the FEBT site has restoration work reports up to about mid 2011.

One lunger engines date back to the late 19th century so I had no idea how old these things could be.
Cheers!

As an update, this 1903 railcar is now operational and is currently undergoing braking tests on the Embsay Railway in Yorkshire.
