December 2019 has seen progress across new-build London and North Eastern Railway P2 Class No.2007’s engine and tender.
The tender tank baseplate is ready for fitting. Once the blind nuts (96 in total) had been welded onto the baseplate, the plate was trial fitted to the frame before being taken to the tender tank.
Beading for the tank has been bent into place.
Robert Stephenson Ltd have completed forging four coupling rods. Machining work has been carried out on the Cartazzi planks and axle-driven alternator components.
The Company has taken delivery of the pony truck cannon box. Trial fitting of the combined stays and spring hanger brackets has taken place.
