Our boiler inspector was happy with our hydraulic test, this week, so "Many Thanks" go to all the people at LNWR Heritage, Crewe, who have worked so hard to achieve this.

Success!

Preparations are now underway for the out-of-frames steam test. The manifold, fire hole doors, and gauge frames will be fitted to the boiler for this.

Fire Hole Doors and Manifold being prepared for fitting.

The repairs to the middle big end have been completed, and the con. rod has been fitted.
