Saturday 7th April 2018


We have made reasonable progress with the reassembly of the K1 over the last few days with a particularly good turn out of 8 on Saturday.

The cab and RH con rod were re-fitted at the end of last week and the tender put back into its wheels on Saturday. Many more minor jobs have also been undertaken but there is still a lot to do.

On a positive note our boiler insurance company carried out the annual cold exam on Monday with no issues to report.

I am going back over to Carnforth tomorrow with a view to reassembling the K1 to a point where it can be steamed on Sunday. Any help you can give would be most appreciated. The co car will be available so you can do as few, or as many days as you like.
