News - 14 June 2016
The superstructure work continues. Some time ago we made the decision to renew all the superstructure members between the cabs, this work requires considerable effort and time to ensure that everything is aligned correctly and all the compound curves are accurate. Time spent getting this right is repaid in bucketloads when it comes to fitting the bodyside panels.
Richard Senior's photo below shows the level of replacement being undertaken - nothing is being left as original apart from two minor uprights about halfway along the body.
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.
