Frame Stretchers Delivered to Llangollen

Four frame stretchers were delivered to the Llangollen Railway Works during December 2011 and are awaiting fitting to the frames of 'The Unknown Warrior'.

The stretchers which were cast from new patterns made by Eddie Mocraft at the Boro Foundry, were machined before delivery to Llangollen. The four stretchers arrived at Llangollen in protective plastic sheeting.

The stretchers will be fitted between the frame plates of 'The Unknown Warrior' to enable a rigid assembly to be built. New drawings for the fifth stretcher are being completed. 

All the parts that are needed to enable the rolling chassis, minus front bogie truck, to be completed are either on order or have been made from new. This will enable the rolling chassis to be assembled at the Llangollen Railway Works
