Work during 2019 has seen new build British Railways (BR) Standard Class 3 Tank No.82045 progress very well, with 82045 spending majority of the year undercover at Bridgnorth Erecting Shop on the Severn Valley Railway (SVR), allowing work to progress no matter what weather.

The hundreds of hours spent building both pony trucks are nearing the end, with the last major steps being final assembly and planning out the lubrication system for the moving parts of the trucks.
Discussions on lubrication are ongoing, while the final assembly of the pony trucks is planned to take place next to the engine in the erecting shop.

Pull rods have been delivered to the SVR where bushes etc can be fitted. In order to produce pipes for the vacuum, steam heat, injector and balance pipe, the water tanks will need to be temporarily fitted to the frame.
The combination levels & union links and longitudinal & transverse firebox stays have been delivered to SVR.
