J27 - 26 January 2022


Ian reports that it was a fine, cold, slightly overcast, morning at Grosmont on Wednesday, but warming up later on. Present were Bill Dobson, Ed Bolam, Nigel Hall, David Potter, Trevor Wilford, Jon Bradley and Ian himself.

On the J27, Nigel worked all day cleaning the front of the tender and around the shovelling area. All this has now had a coat of black primer.

David made 2 new gaskets for the J27 safety valves.

It was noted that the lefthand side big end bearing and also the righthand con rod and its big end have been removed since last Wednesday. The engine and tender were split a couple of weeks ago and the drawbar removed and sent away for shortening.
