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.

Work continues on the cladding

The task in hand- Top of photo; one piece of valve cladding cleaned and ready for painting.
Bottom of photo; as the cladding came off 7820 complete with 10 years accumulation of crud.

The merry band continue scraping, degreasing and using any possible method to remove accumulated oil, grease, soot, ash, brake dust and numerous other baked on substances.
