The 6880 Society have released a short update on the work taking place on new build Grange Class – 6880 ‘Betton Grange’.
With the first week of February came another volunteer working party on new build Grange No. 6880 ‘Betton Grange’. Volunteers have been carrying out work on the frames and re-wheeling. The fitting of springs was also carried out on 2nd February.
A major job is now complete on the new build’s boiler with it now been fully riveted and is now just awaiting some new stays before been tubed in the near future.
The staff at Tyseley Locomotive Works have also placed the pistons into the cylinders.
This is exciting times for the loco as she is forever nearing completion.
The staff are putting in lots of effort and are doing the railway community proud in building this loco as it fills a missing gap in the locos that sadly weren’t preserved!
