The new lubricator casting has recently turned up from the foundry. It is seen pictured with all the spare lubricator parts the Group acquired some time ago. This casting will be machined up and the kit of parts will be completed and assembled. Many thanks to all of those who have donated so far!
In addition to lubricator we’ve also bought a safety valve base, clack valve pedestal and injector water valve elbow. We’re slowly replacing all the missing parts with your help, in readiness for the locomotives overhaul. Our next big fundraising appeal will be for the locomotive’s brake valve. Stay posted and keep donating to the appeal if you can.
