Q6 Boiler passes Hydraulic Test

Following the Q6 firebox repairs, a succesful hydraulic test was carried out at LNWR Crewe yesterday (1st May) in the presence of the insurance company inspector. The steam test has been arranged for Tuesday 13th May. Assuming that is satisfactory, reassembly of the engine will be carried out at Crewe before it is returned to Pickering to be reunited with its tender, and, hopefully, a swift return to traffic on the NYMR for the 2014 season.
