Nick Simpson, of the Grosmont MPD News – The Original Facebook Group, has announced that steam locomotive 92134 has had its boiler removed.

The boiler was removed outside Grosmont MPD on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway today, 6th November 2018, by resident steam crane found at the railway.

This removal of the boiler now allows the workers to drill the underside smoke box rivet holes.

Also, the removal will allow the header to be fitted and the trial fitting of the ash pan will also be completed whilst the boiler is off the frames.

The fitting of the superheater elements will also take place during this time.

As with most heritage railways, most of the work undertaken on the railway is done so thanks to donations and volunteers.

If you can’t volunteer, you can also help the railway by donating some spare money. Click here to learn more about donating.
