J27 - 15 December 2021


Ian reports a fine sunny day at Grosmont last Wednesday, with only Steve Hyman, Ed Bolam and Ian Pearson present.

On the J27 another side stay was found to be cracked. These are in the process of being removed by the MPD boilersmiths. The righthand hand rail got mushroomed at the cab end while being hammered back to allow access to the stay heads. Steve Hyman ground the mushroomed end and also ground inside the hand rail so it now fits the cab retaining boss.
