Rivet holes reamed out

Over the 4 days from 22nd – 25th November working members including Mick Prior, David Huntbatch, Richard Pumphrey and Quentin McGuinness successfull reamed out a large number of holes in the forward section of the locomotive’s frames ready for hot rivetting. The process involved the use of the magdrill. There are still further holes to be reamed out once final alignment of the front buffer beam has been completed. Once this has been done the hot rivetting can take place and this is expected to happen towards the end of the year.

The above work will allow the wheeeling of the locomotive to take place in early 2013
