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 the firebox taking shape taken in March & April

Where new meets old on the doorplate (no the picture is not upside down the boiler is!)

Still full of holes but progressing towards a completed boiler rather than being taken apart.

Butt strap has been re-riveted to get rid of the coroded heads.

All new stay holes drilled and tapped awaiting installation of the new stays.

The new tube plate under manufacture, being drilled for all the tubes.
