J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
Steam locomotive 3672 Dame Vera Lynn has been moved around Grosmont MPD in preparation for this weekend’s working party.
The locomotive’s frames have been made ready for the group of volunteers to restart work on the overhaul.
This weekend, the working party will be working on completing a steam clean of the frames, a degrease and perhaps taking the valve covers off if progress is good.
Work is concentrating on the underframes and cleaning all the years of dirt and rust off.
If you want to join in the work to bring Dame Vera Lynn back to steam, then you will need to be a member of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and also the Dame Vera Lynn group. You can find out how to join the North Yorkshire Moors Railway here, and the Dame Vera Lynn group here.
