The Small Loco Group have posted an update on their Facebook page on the recent progress on Hunslet Works-built Jacks Green’s cosmetic overhaul.
Members of the Group returned to Wansford Locomotive Shed on the Nene Valley Railway on Saturday 6th of June 2020, following the closure of the shed due to COVID-19, with attention turning to Jacks Green’s cosmetic overhaul.
Recent work has seen primer, and undercoat paint applied to the cab, tank and bunker on the right-hand side. Coupling rods on the right-hand side, coupled wheels on the left-hand side and cab roof have received their first layer of topcoat.
