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.

Saturday, 24th August 2013 - Tyseley


The connecting rods are laid out ready for refitting of the big end bushes
The outer face of the connecting rod has been re-metalled and the bush bored ready to fit to the rod
The coupling rods have been similarly refurbished and are ready for the completed bushes to be fitted
Parts of the brake gear which require attention are laid out alongside the rear coupling rods


The smoke box door has been rubbed down and another coat of heat resistant paint applied to give the door a very acceptable finish
