The current overhaul is on target to complete by December 2015. This is subject to loaded test runs with the Vehicle Acceptance Body, and if all goes according to our plan we look forward to the return to mainline operation in Spring 2016. So watch this space for further updates on Lizzie’s comeback!
On the 24th and 25th October, Lizzie was back in steam once again at the autumn Tyseley Open weekend. 6201 Took part in the cavalcades up and down the yard accompanied by Tyseley ex Great Western resident locos 4965 Rood Ashton Hall and 9600 Pannier Tank. The weekend was a great success, and visitors were once again able to see the progress on the restoration.
