They do, but most aren't beyond redemption. Reminds me of the two Rogers built steam locos which were used as fill for a dam wall in New Zealand. They were down there in the mud for nearly 100 years. The mob who wanted them sent a probe down, and found them. When they finally excavated them out, they found that they were in really good condition. Further examination found that around 70% of the original fabric could be used to restore them to working order, and both are now in steam running tourist trains. You blokes have got a pretty good head-start on that Vulcan. I'm curious as to whether or not Bill's natural progression will come into play on the Vulcan. You get one engine going; what's your excuse for not getting the others going...Et cetera.
Further to the above if anyones interested

They were only under for 47 years...That'll teach me to rely on my memory (it's rubbish at the best of times).
