The K1 and support coach have returned from Tyseley by road to New Bridge yard, the coach arriving early Thursday 9th, the K1 on Saturday 11th and the tender Monday 13th. The engine and tender were joined together today by Bryan Orange and Steve Gibson.
A working party at New Bridge on Saturday helped unload the locomotive, partially examine, and refilled the boiler. The locomotive requires an NYMR acceptance examination before we can return to Grosmont.
The locomotive arrived back at Grosmont mid afternoon Wednesday.
Unfortunately, the subsequent inspection found that a few repairs were necessary. Consequently the locomotive is unlikely to be participating in the Spring Gala at the weekend.
