On the final weekend at Tyseley, members of the working party continue fitting the multitude of pipes, fittings and plating to the cab
In her new unlined black livery, 7820 is prepared to leave Tyseley
for her new home
Final fitting out and steam testing will take place on the G-W
railway after which final lagging of steam pipes and covers
will be undertaken
Smoke box door fitted, cab windows being installed - nearly ready to depart
Some of the working party members, without whose tireless efforts
weekend after weekend 7820 would not have reached this point in her
overhaul, gather in front of the engine with smiles all round.
Thanks also go to the staff of Tyseley Locomotive Works whose
friendship over the past months will be sorely missed.
