Push Gathers Steam to Restore a Historic Loco
J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
The Friends of Locomotive 4930 Hagley Hall have released an update on the overhaul of the steam locomotive.
The removal of 4930’s new cylinder blocks from its frames has taken place over the past few weeks.
This task will make sure that the final adjustments to the frames are completed before permanent activity.
Removal of the cylinders has also simplified the machining of the back faces in order to ensure proper positioning of the retaining nuts and will allow easier fitting of the valve liners.
The eccentrics are now fully complete apart from the bushes. In the machine shop, Harry Coates, an apprentice, is hard at work producing spring hangers for the locomotive.
Work on the boiler at Stockton is proceeding well, and before its return, an order for a new set of superheater elements have been placed.
