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.

Friday 8th November 2013 - Tyseley

The Re-Union
With the steam test successfully completed, the boiler arrives at Tyseley aboard Allelys transport to be re-united with the rolling chassis

A quarter of a million pound plus of boiler is eased of the transport trailer by Tyseley's steam crane

The trailer eases away from under the boiler in readiness for it to be lowered onto packing.

In very wet conditions the boiler is eased into a position where it can be placed on packing to permit fitting of the smoke box and ash pan
