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, 28th February to Sunday, 2nd March 2014.




      7820 is moved into the yard over the inspection pit. in the
             background in red oxide paint is the tender it was hoped to use initially.

                              Backed up to 5542 in readiness to move from the yard to..................
the watering facility to have the boiler filled

      And finally the tender which it is hoped will run initially
 behind 7820 loaned from 9017


      Just a pity the engine will not come with the tender as a black Manor
     and black Dukedog double headed would be a sight to behold!!
