The K1 returns to Carnforth


The K1 has now completed it's seasons work and returned to Carnforth, arriving almost 2 hours early at approx 23:25 on Friday.

The loco has had a very successful season completing 74 Jacobite's as well as its work on the GBX with 100% availability. Many thanks to all who made this possible by working on the loco last winter or supporting it through the operating season.

This Winter's maintenance has already begun with the removal of the piston values and primary screen and the disconnection of the gauges, transducers and intermediate bags etc bring completed before the last of last week's support crew left Carnforth at 15:00 yesterday.

Working parties will now be held every Saturday, with some full weekends and mid week working thrown in, until the winter work has been completed. The most significant jobs to be undertaken this winter are outlined in October's NELPG News.
