J72 Stopped with Leaking Tubes


The J72 is currently not operating on the Wensleydale Railway because of some leaking tubes. Urgent action is being taken to remedy the situation and get the locomotive back in service as quickly as possible.

10th July Locomotive ran "magnificently" over the weekend. Boilersmith's attention expanding the tubes seems to have cured the problem
