September 2018

We've had a small store of air parts recovered from the loco when we were stripping the loco and some parts acquired over the years to replace those that were missing. Dusting them off from their resting place, they have found their way into the shotblasting cabinet before being stripped and rebuilt.

The fire system is still being fettled and discovered that two pieces of conduit was missing, possibly rotted away or fell apart when it was dismantled. Replacing with new conduit, which will be in metric sizes so adaptors required.

We also have facebook pages too, where we update regular progress -
