News - 29 April 2016
As noted lat week, work is now underway with the roof closure rails.
See below is the A side rail. It is totally unsupported and not yet lined up - this is to be done prior to the loco being moved to make space for the upcoming Beer Festival at Barrow Hill.
Also, of note is that the underframe supports are all removed now and the loco sits quite happliy supporting its own weight.
A limited number of worksplates replicas cast in aluminium are available for sale. They are the same design as the ones to be carried by our recreated loco. These will be highly polished and painted, when finished they will be indistinguishable from those mounted on the loco. They are available at £85 each and can be pre-ordered here - see the sales page for details.
