65894 smokebox with new concrete on 17 November 2021 - Ian Pearson.

Down at the MPD, Nigel Hall and Ed Bolam completed the concreting of the J27 smokebox with a layer of broken brick arch and then a layer of concrete on top (see photo). Chris Henwood has been preparing the J27 for washing out with the removal of plugs and doors, but the Railway is aiming to have both locomotives ready for steam testing later on next week and then ready for Christmas running.
