Taff Vale Railway locomotive No28 – January working party update

Work has continued this month to prepare number 28 for the boiler lift. The remaining fixings were removed from the cab, and final checks made to ensure the boiler is now free and ready to lift off the frames. The side rods have been removed, and axle crank pins protected. The bearings removed from the rods to reverse engineer to make patterns for new castings. The boiler lift is planned for early March.
