Push Gathers Steam to Restore a Historic Loco
J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
It has been confirmed that the repairs being completed on Ex-LNER ‘A4’ No. 60009 ‘Union of South Africa’ won’t be completed in time for the weekend.
This means that the locomotive will not haul its tour to York and back this coming Saturday, 30th November 2019.
The locomotive failed last week on its run down to Southall with tender axlebox problems, this was fixed at Rugby overnight, but this reoccured near Milton Keynes and means it couldn’t continue.
The tender has now been detached from the locomotive at Wolverton Works and is now at Ian Riley’s workshop in Bury.
It is expected that Number 9 will resume its mainline duties 14th December 2019.
