The East Lancashire Railway has announced that their resident steam locomotive, 34092 City of Wells, has been loaned a new tender.
The Southern Railways-built locomotive has not run for a few weeks due to it’s tender developing a fault. This has left services in the hands of 80097, 60009 ‘Union of South Africa’ and even 32 ‘Gothenburg’ (hauling a 10 coach train with 37109 last week!)
To get the locomotive back on track, the railway has secured the tender from 34067 ‘Tangmere’, a mainline certified locomotive that is undergoing overhaul work.
The loan of the tender is thanks to West Coast Railways, who are based at Carnforth Steamtown.
34092 should now be out on passenger services soon!
