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.

22nd February 2014 - Toddington, GW Railway

   The race is now on to complete 7820 so that it is available to the
  Railway for the Cheltenham Gold Cup Event. Inside the smoke
     box, new ejector and blower pipes are being fashioned and fitted.
       The safety valve bonnet also requires some repairs and fitting to the
       boiler cladding. The red nameplate is fitted on the fireman's side
whilst the drivers side will have a black background

                                  Sunshine catches the new paintwork of 7820 as she stands
                              amongst the detritus inside Toddingtons covered accommodation.
