Ever wondered how we turn out a working locomotive?
Our photo album of “work in progress” may help answer the question!
The pictures show a whole range of activities – and show that there is a task that can suite anyone, no matter what age, gender or skill level.
Remember – we are always looking for new volunteers to join our friendly team – full training available – e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for full details (and if you don’t wish to be “hands on” we also welcome armchair supporters – same e-mail for details)
Andrew working on the same section – here he is drilling a pilot hole before using the mag-drill (seen over his shoulder) to drill a larger hole. Once the centre of the rivet is hollowed out, the rivet buster can be used to remove it completely
Monday 10th May 2021 was a big day – 3850’s new cylinder assembly was turned the right way round – ready for re-uniting with the frames. Follow the links for a photo album of the day and a video – thanks to David Holmes and David Foster for the pictures
