New cylinder castings delivered

The new cylinder and steam chest castings for the rebuild of Large England Welsh Pony have been delivered to Boston Lodge.

With the saddle tank and cab repaired and painted; the motion stripped and the new frames available, most of the key components needed for the loco’s return to steam in time for its 150th birthday in 2017 are now ready. The new boiler design shown in the last issue of Inside Motion remains to be signed off and construction started.

The saddle tank and cylinder castings will be on public display at Carrog station during the Llangollen Railway’s Steel, Steam and Stars gala between March 6th and 15th.
