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.

                                           Brake Gear

The brake pull rods, buckle links and compensating gear are made ready for installing beneath the locomotive. This proved to be a frustrating task and remains to be completed

Inside the tent, attention is given to the cab sides as David returns to his duties

With a Tyseley Open Day on the Sunday, some improvisation was made to secure the smoke box door as the fittings were not yet in place.
