The tender for GWR Hall 5952 Cogan Hall has left the Llangollen Railway for pastures new at Tyseley Locomotive Works.
Back in March, it was announced that both 6880 Betton Grange and 5952 Cogan Hall would move away from the Llangollen Railway to their new home.
At Tyseley, the tender will be dismantled and parts used to form a new tender (No. 2268) for 6880 Betton Grange.
The priority is to complete the final assembly of 6880 Betton Grange, which Tyseley Locomotive Works has been commissioned to complete. A targeted steaming date has been set for the autumn.
The focus will then turn to construct a replica Collett tender, a chassis is already owned for this.
An opportunity has been taken to cosmetically restore Cogan Hall for display at Tyseley.
At the time that the move was announced, a spokesperson for the Society said “The 6880 Betton Grange Society wish to put on record its appreciation to the Llangollen Railway for providing a home for the project during its earlier stages and wish the railway well for the future.
The 6880 Betton Grange Society are grateful to Tyseley Locomotive Works for providing a home for existing and future projects.”
