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.

More progress towards re-wheeling

More progress has been made towards re-wheeling 7820 with the production of new spring hanger bolts to replace those which were found to have corroded beyond being suitable for reuse.

Thanks to some hard work by volunteers and their associates some of the existing nuts were salvaged for re-use. It all helps to keep the costs of a heavy overhaul down.
