The Groudle Glen Railway has released a further update on the progress being made on steam locomotive ‘Brown Bear’.

The assembly is taking place at Old Hall Farm in Cumbria.

The locomotive’s boiler has now been mounted to the frames and the general assembly of the cabs and tanks are now complete.

Brown Bear has also recently had her whistle fitted, too.

It is now hoped that Brown Bear will be completed by end of the year and that she will be in service during 2019.
