Work was done on 847 this morning. The loco is being readied for a steam test following some boiler work. The grate was refitted in the firebox and the tender fall plate refitted.
Work was also done on 'Stowe'. The area surrounding her frames were tidied, allowing them be more easily accessed. The new boiler backhead also recently arrived at Sheffield Park, from the South Devon Railway at Buckfastleigh (see photo).
