    Work is progressing nicely with the Valve chest liners and the Boiler. We would like to give special thanks to three volunteers in the loco shed for the work they have done on 13268. They come in on a Tuesday and have helped by drilling and burning out the rivets on the rear buffer beam of the locomotives drag box. Without their help we would still be working on removing it. Their names are: Iwan Astley, Mark Rigby and Ivor Smith (we hope we have spelled them correctly).

    It is with great excitement we can report that on the 15th August 2016 our Boiler went into the Boilershop at Bridgnorth. Without any delay, work has already commenced on removing the smokebox. This is a big step in the overhaul of the Stanier Mogul, and the countdown clock now starts to speed up towards the return to steam.

    2968 / 13268 has been moved into the space vacated by pannier tank 7714, which has had its boiler refitted and is on its way to completion. While this takes us deeper inside the shed, it is much lighter at this point, allowing work which would have been difficult previously, especially to the left hand side.
