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.

Cleaning up the front end.

Now that the bogie has been removed work has shifted to the front end of the frames and the frame extensions. Much claening, scraping and painting will see this area looking as tidy as the back half.

What is usually hidden below the cylinders and above the bogie. Easy access now makes the clean up far easier.

The bogie frame nearly cleaned and ready for paint.

You never know what you will find lurking under the front end of a steam engine, fortunately in this case it was just a hard working volunteer.
