Work Starts on 10 year overhaul of 5552

Published: 29th November 2015

We have recently started work in earnest on the overhaul of our Great Western tank engine 5552.  This is a 'ten yearly' overhaul which involves taking the boiler out of the frames and making any necessary repairs including a new set of boiler tubes.  The photograph shows the process of starting to remove the old tubes.  Some work will also be required to the wheels and frames of the locomotive which we plan to work on this winter.
