The PRCLT has announced that, sadly, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland has been declared a failure in the late hours of yesterday evening.
The locomotive made her way to Norwich yesterday from Southall in preparation for its tour to Chester today.
However, during servicing, it was found that the right inside valve spindle bush had seized to the valve spindle.
First thing this morning, the support crew had removed the valve from the locomotive and transport arrangements have been made to get the damaged parts back to the West Shed for repairs to be made.

This failure means that today’s tour to Chester has been replaced by a diesel locomotive throughout. Please bear this in mind if you are heading out to see the tour today.
We shall update you on the progress of repairs as and when we hear about them.
