Engineering update - July 2013

The completed driving wheelsets for 'The Unknown Warrior' were delivered to Tyseley at the beginning of July. The all-new Heritage Railway magazine-supported wheelsets have been assembled at Buckfastleigh workshops of South Devon Railway Engineering. At Tyseley Locomotive Works they will be balanced with lead weights, turned, and have the axleboxes fitted before being taken to the Llangollen Railway Works to be fitted to the frames of 'The Unknown Warrior' to enable the rolling chassis (minus the front bogie), to be completed.

Members' Day

The third Members' Day took place at the Llangollen Railway on the 15th June. Around 190 Members attended the day and travelled behind specially chartered Black 5 number 44806, which did three round trips to Carrog. Lunch was served on the middle train of the day when all Members took the opportunity to see the beautiful Dee Valley on the way to Carrog.

Driving Wheel Progress

The driving wheelsets have nearly been completed at the South Devon Railway at Buckfastleigh. The final two crank pins were machined and fitted, and the balance weight plates were also riveted on the driving wheels during May. The final jobs that remain to be done are tyre turning and pouring of molten lead in between the balance weight plates.

Smokebox Completed at LNWR Heritage, Crewe

The Smokebox has now been completed at Crewe and was delivered to the Llangollen Railway Works on the 5th June. Volunteer LMS-Patriot Project painters and Llangollen Railway volunteers, Godfrey Hall and John Sandiford have painted the top coat and the smokebox now looks resplendent with its shiny black paint - ready to go on display for LMS-Patriot Project Members' Day.

Middle Cylinder Cast for 'The Unknown Warrior'

The middle cylinder for 'The Unknown Warrior' was 'knocked out' on the 29th May at the Coupe Foundry in Preston. BBC Radio Lancashire was there to witness this landmark occasion - the first major casting to be made for a standard gauge steam locomotive from a polystyrene pattern.

Fifth Anniversary of Launch of Project

This month marks the fifth anniversary of the launch of the Project at the Llangollen Railway. Five years on from the launch we had our sales stand at the Llangollen Spring Gala, which featured the Railmotor and autocoach as the stars of the gala.

To mark the anniversary the Project is appealing to Members and supporters to support the Boiler and Cylinder Appeals so that the tremendous rate of progress can continue.
