The Final Frontier
The impressive sight of 7820's boiler standing on packing with Tyseley's steam crane in the background. This will now be used to lift the smoke box into place
Checking the packing under the firebox
The chimney arrives at Tyseley in readiness to be fitted to the smoke box. 7820 will carry the later elegant style of chimney fitted in the 1950's by B.R. after redrafting of the Manors
The cab roof receives some TLC. This cannot now be refitted until the boiler is in the frames
Some of the compensating links and a brake hanger pin have been machined by volunteers in readiness to complete the re-assembly of the brake gear.
I take it by the comment about the BR 50's chimney that the livery will be BR green? or will it be something else?ReplyDelete
BR Green it will beDelete
