22nd October 2010

Sorry there's been no updates or pics for a while, but I've been busy. So below is a quick summary of where we are up to with 5199.

We are almost at the point where the boiler will be going back in the frames I understand that she held 270 psi on a hydraulic yesterday and she remained dry as a bone. If successful in passing her hydraulic test today with the inspector present, then we will steam her this weekend.

We are now aiming to have the chassis finished by the the end of Sunday, so we need all hands to the pump to put her back together.

The new lagging is in stock, paint is on order, the brushes are there, along with all the nuts, bolts, spanners, etc we will need.

So what is stopping you?

We have an excellent chance of making 5199 runner at what will be the gala to round off 2010.

See you there
