Summer 2012

Work has recently restarted on Frank. 

The bonnet has been refurbished and temporarily placed back on the loco.

The engine has seized solid, and a lot of hours have been spent trying to free it. However despite our best attempts to free it, we have had no luck. We have struck a deal with Perkins Engines, who rebuilt the loco in the 70's for their apprentices to overhaul the engine free of charge.

The cab has also had a fresh coat of primer added.
