MEMBERS' MONTHLY BULLETIN - AUGUST 2021

Engineering

An independent competent review has supported our decision to replace the driving wheels rather than attempting repair.

Our driving wheels are now at Boro Foundry for examination: we and the Foundry are cooperating on the provision of information about the engineering history of the wheels to establsih the cause of the defects.

MEMBERS’ MONTHLY BULLETIN JULY 2021

Engineering 

A full report on the driving wheels defects reported last month was submitted to our quarterly Trustee Board meeting on 31st July (our first face-to-face board meeting since January 2020).  The Board accepted the evidence which showed that the wheels will have to be replaced, and gave guidance on the way forward for the project.

MEMBERS MONTHLY BULLETIN, JUNE 2021

Engineering 

The major news this month concerns our driving wheels. We reported last month that they had to be tested after defects had been found in one wheel. The shot-blasting required for testing purposes was completed around the end of May, and the inspection itself was completed on June 14th.

MEMBERS MONTHLY BULLETIN, MAY 2021

Engineering

Work at West Shed continues to be limited by PRCLT’s need to allocate resources to 6233’s overhaul. However the left hand side expansion link has been successfully fitted and the inside expansion link has been removed for assessment.

There is no progress yet on the testing of the driving wheels reported in last month’s bulletin. The wheels have to be shot-blasted before the testing can be carried out and we are liaising actively with Riley and Son to get this done.
