    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.
