Washout Week 2

Saturday, 24 August 2019 10:28 Paul Hutchinson K1 Blog

The K1 has just had its second 28 day exam and washout of the season.

All went well apart from the failure of our new pump. Many thanks to Ian Riley for the loan of his pump to finish the job. We also completed a number of repairs/improvements before Thursdays steam test which went very well. We have done a bit more tinkering today and the engine is now back in steam for its usual prep day/FTR tomorrow.

The loco has now just two weeks work on the Jacobite before it is due to move to the NYMR, where it is expected arrive on the evening of 16th Sept.

It has been a good season so far - let's hope it continues!
