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.

Making more new pins.

Trainee lathe operator happy at work making pins. (perhaps more concentration on the job in hand rather than the camera would be good!)

New pins being drilled for the split pin. Note the old worn pin on the corner of the table.

Putting the flats on the head to enable the pin to be rotated once installed. This allows easier installation and extraction of the split pin.

The machinist at work. (Note concentrating on job not camera!)
