The P2 Steam Locomotive Company have released an update on the construction of their new build London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) P2 Class, No.2007 “Prince of Wales”.
Progress on building the tender for “Prince of Wales” has reached an important milestone, with the tender tank now completed.
The final stages before being finished saw a hydraulic test completed, followed by grit-blasting. The tender tank now awaits transport from North View Engineering Solutions to Darlington Locomotive Works.
Recent work on the tender’s frame at Ian Howitt’s engineering works has seen many of the smaller components, such as brake pull levers, have work completed on them.
All six springs for the wheelsets have been delivered to Darlington Locomotive Works, with primer and undercoat being applied to all three wheelsets.
