A couple of photos of recent progress at Wansford…
Above: In the carriage workshop, BR Mk1 SK No.25347 has received a primer coat over the myriad of metal repairs, and work has been ongoing to replace the internal wooden door trims, which were unsalvageable.
Above: Guess what’s back… The boiler for No.1 ‘Thomas’ has now returned from overhaul in north Norfolk! The chassis is rapidly coming together and has been awaiting the boiler in order to enable final assembly to begin. This important little locomotive cannot return to steam soon enough!

In other news, a ‘Volunteer’s Day’ was held on Saturday 5th March, which by all accounts went very well with a lot of interest generated, and several new members and volunteers coming forward. Why not do the same and join us?
