THE PATRIOTS • A PICTORIAL RECORD • VOLUME ONE • 45500–45525

This new fund-raising pictorial book contains many previously unpublished photos of this much missed class of locomotive. Contained in its 120 pages are over 100 superb monochrome and colour photos which span four decades from introduction to the LMS in the 1930s to the demise of the entire class in the 1960s, all capturing the Patriot class in its original parallel boiler form as designed by Sir Henry Fowler. All profits from the book will go directly towards the completion of The Unknown Warrior.

Engineering up-date - May 2018 2018

Locomotive Frame Assembly

Work continues on the construction of The Unknown Warrior at number of locations.

I have said before that building a full size steam locomotive is not an easy task. The past 3 months have been one of increasing frustration due to delays in supply of parts from suppliers or poor quality work which has led to the rejection of a number of components that were not of sufficient quality to be used on The Unknown Warrior. This will have an effect on the assembly of the locomotive as the parts are long lead time replacements.
