7820 Dinmore Manor - The Blog

This blog will follow the heavy overhaul of 7820 through to its return to steam. The chassis is being overhauled at Tyseley Locomotive Works whilst the boiler is being overhauled at Ian Riley's workshops.
We are working hard every weekend to bring together the hundreds of small pieces that require refurbishing to get the loco back into working order. Follow us to keep up todate with the weekly progress and who knows if you like the look of what you see you may even be tempted to join us and help put 7820 back in action.

Will the cladding ever be finished......

Cleaning of the main boiler and firebox cladding.

Still many small bits to be sorted proir to reassembly.

Some of the lips and cladding edges have been eaten away by tin worm. Time to cut out the wasted sections.

Then weld in replacement patches prior to fianl rubbing down and painting.
