16th September 2017 - Engineering Update

Today has seen all the cladding on the boiler removed and plenty of scraping of scale along with a number of items removed from the boiler back head for storage. Work carried out by Team Vera and NYMR Junior Volunteers.

If you're visiting the NYMR Autumn Steam Gala over the weekend why not visit the team sales stall in the Marquee on Platform 2 where we have some special prints and a Prize Draw for £1-a-go - the prize being an unframed print signed by 'Dame Vera Lynn' of 3672 at Rest.

Also some of the Restoration Team will be working on the loco, which has been moved on display, at Grosmont MPD on Saturday - we will be more than happy to answer any questions.

More working parties are planned. If you want to get involved, please contact us for details.
