27 in Sheffield Park Yard - Dave Colwell
The picture above taken by Dave Colwell shows the loco in 1982 or thereabouts. probably just before it was dismantled. although it looked tatty at that point, the loco was in not too bad a condition.

This weekend there was not too much activity on the main part of the project, however, work has continued on the right hand tank. This is to prepare the tank for being painted into the ROD (Railway Operating Division) livery that will be unveiled on Saturday 25th April. The day is now well into the preparation stage and we are hopeful of a reasonable turn out on the day.
