After our last successful appeal to bring home a local steam engine and carry out initial work, we've progressed really well, and completed welding work and are now fitting boiler tubes in readiness for pressure testing.
While all this has been going on, we're now turning our attention to the water tank, which unfortunately is as watertight as a tea-bag!
Restoring a steam loco is quite a daunting task, and we need a bit of help to cover the costs of having the tank rebuilt, so we'd be very grateful to any an all that contribute towards the cost. All going to plan we hope to have her running again in 2021. Help us to put fire in its belly!
