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.

19th to 22nd February 2014 - On the move

                                                      THE EAGLE HAS LANDED

Sunshine blessed the day when 7820 was scheduled to depart from Tyseley and
 pauses for a photo on the turntable

The track ramp is in place as 7820 eases gently onto the transporter

A winches eye view

                                                          On board the transporter

                                 During the final stages of loading, a problem was discovered
                                   with the transporter requiring the assisting of a mechanic

                                             Darkness fell before the problem was rectified


The driver ran out of hours on his tacho and 7820 was shunted to spent
another night at Tyseley
On Thursday 20th February 2014, 7820 arrived at Toddington and was unloaded
 in a brief spell of sunshine
Out in the yard on Saturday, 22nd February, the fitting of a host of
finishing parts is underway.
