Progress over April and into May
6 May 2016


Progress on Lizzie's overhaul is moving forward apace. At the end of April, the Boiler Inspector made his final checks, and we now await a visit from the Vehicle Acceptance Body to conduct their examinations which should be completed over the coming days.

We're also pressing on with some additional jobs on the locomotive to help increase reliability going forward, but as a result the cost of the overhaul keeps increasing. One of the next jobs we have to find the money for in May is gauging at a cost of £4,500 + VAT. This is a requirement for Network Rail and has to be completed by 23rd May. Donations are always gratefully received, and especially at this critical time of nearing completion.
