Wadebridge Loco News

Wadebridge is now back in service following the fitting of the new exhaust steam pipes and a piston and valve examination. There were also repairs to the rear lubricator which kept filling with water and the ratchet drive pawls and shaft needed replacing on the lubricator.

New tender Build

We now have to hand the new axleboxes together with the bearings and underkeep trays and now they are waiting machining. The tender frames have been moved to Ropley Station car park to assess the work needed on them.
