Following a recent visit to McEwen’s boilersmith WR Trust directors were able to review the progress of Steam loco No.40’s boiler.
Considerable work is still required with a significant number of short stays still to fit. Early in the New Year the fire bars, dome cover, safety valves and the regulator valve will be transported from Wolsingham to be reunited with boiler for testing. Our Boiler Inspector is due to review progress as part of their periodic review soon.
It is anticipated to have the boiler reunited with the frame sometime in 2018.
