This last week saw the arrival of the 40 new super heater elements. They were all fitted within a day and a big thank you to the Loughborough Shed staff for their impressive effort.
Looking ahead, a boiler exam is due early this week with a steam test to follow. Shortly after, 70013 will be gauged by Network Rail to ensure we are still within gauge. Hopefully all being well, we aim to have a test run in early/mid July, so watch this space!
In other news, 777 is in service this weekend for the GCR's 1940s Wartime Weekend.
