Let's get old Brum loco back on track; Get in touch - tell us what you think Email: Twitter: @birminghammail Facebook: Post: Birmingham Mail, 60 Church Street, Birmingham B3 2DJ.

TIME and time after time Birmingham City Council miss the boat when it comes to celebrating the greatness of this city, I refer to the City of Birmingham locomotive 6235 which is now languishing in a museum somewhere.

So many opportunities were lost to show off our engineering heritage, not to mention other milestones which the old girl could have participated in. Of course it is too late for the Commonwealth Games to get her running for this event, some will say that it will be too expensive and we need to concentrate on social issues first but I disagree. Come on Brummies, let's get our great loco out and do us proud.
