Locomotive News – Jan 09

Boilersmiths from the firm of Israel Newton, of Bradford, will be at Dunaskin at the end of this week to replace two rivets on the steam receiver.Once this has been completed, work can begin on putting the locomotive back together again.

Meantime, the replacement steam exhaust pipe has been fitted, the steps have been straightened out, and the external exhaust pipe has been removed for cleaning. A new sparge pipe is ready for fitting and new cladding plates have been rolled.

We are still hopeful of having the locomotive in steam at some point during the 2009 season.
