Push Gathers Steam to Restore a Historic Loco
J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
It was a massive day at the depot last Monday with 2 cranes arriving in order to perform the very rare event of lifting J515 off the tracks for maintenance.
Our team worked throughout the day to lift the loco and remove the wheels and axle boxes for cleaning, whilst also checking the axle box bearings and beginning to prepare the chassis for painting.

Here the chains are being adjusted prior to being positioned under the locos frame.
