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.

Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th January 2014 - Tyseley Locomotive Works

After initial fitting of the boiler, 7822 is moved under cover inside Tyseley Locomotive Works.
Disturbed by the shunting movement, one of the gnomes of Tyseley appears at the fire hole
before entertaining the volunteers with some ash pan antics!!!!
Attention is given to the cab window frame brass work which has not seen a tin of Brasso for nine years
The fall plate, which bridges the gap between engine and tender, receives some remedial work with the addition of a rubbing strip
