I think 11717 is the best engine i have seen in quite a while! What is its history? It is a BAA is it not?

Went up to a farm near Haltwhistle many years ago to see 11717, in a bit of a state then, parked next to a Wellington tractor and a ploughing engine, also a partly dismantled A&P 6 ton roller which Jim Gratton bought.

Jake Johnsons by the sound of it . Was his place called Wolf Hills ? I rather think that Jake's BAA was the other one .
