Raising the pressure!

You will all be aware we received a setback when LNWR Heritage decided to end all sub-contract work meaning they would not be completing the construction of the boiler for The Unknown Warrior. At present we are working hard to find a new supplier but cannot say exactly when this will be, but it is likely be known in the next couple of months, therefore we need to ensure we have the funds available when the construction restarts. For that reason, we are launching our Raising the Pressure! appeal for funds dedicated to the completion of the boiler.

Engineering Up-date - July 2017

Locomotive Frame Assembly

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

Following the decision by LNWR Heritage to end all sub-contract work, the workload for the engineering team has increased substantially. This has impacted in several areas, including the time that would normally have been spent compiling these engineering updates. I hope that the workload will reduce in the coming months so the frequency of the reports will become more frequent.
