It is expected that work will continue on the frames for the next few weeks with plenty of drilling to be done! Other jobs coming up is the flat packing of the old frames once we are sure all the donor parts have been removed. Once the old frames are out of the way, it will be possible for then engineering team to commence the erection of the new ones, leading to the production of a rolling chassis.
Thank you for your continued support and interest in the project. Without the support and donations we get we would not be in a position to carry on with the restoration.
Please keep popping back and seeing what we are up to.
If you would like to donate to help the restoration of the loco, the details are below. Please donate responsibly and only give what you can afford
