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.

A few pictures of work completed so far.

The frames cleaned and painted. Since the picture was taken the horns have been ground to take out the 80000 miles of wear that occured over the last boiler ticket.

Valve chests bored. The valves have also been overhauled and are ready to fit when the time arrives.

One new tyre fitted & all tyres turned. Since this picture many happy hours have been spent cleaning and painting the wheels so that they are ready for refitting once the axle boxes are overhauled.
