Overhaul of D49 'Morayshire' recommences!
After a long hiatus work has recommenced on the overhaul of unique Gresley D49 'Morayshire'. Initial work is focused on getting the boiler to the stage of a hydraulic test early next year. To this end the Boiler Inspector has required that the new flue tubes are replaced and that remedial work is undertaken to the sling stays. The boiler was moved into the works of Locomotive Maintenance Services Ltd this week where, as the photo shows, steady progress is now being made.
This work is only possible thanks to the continued generosity of our supporters. If you would like to see Morayshire back in action, please consider making a donation towards the overhaul fund: www.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/246Morayshire
