The G5 Locomotive Company has released a short update on the brake components needed for construction of G5 No. 1759.
As part of the Put The Brakes On Fund, the brake rods, with turn buckles, and brake hangers have had their first coat of paint.
These components were acquired through the Put The Brakes On Fund, and the G5 Loco Company still have more brake components to purchase.
If you would like to donate towards the Put The Brakes On Fund, please visit the G5 Locomotive Company website.
The first open day for the G5 project is expected to be on Saturday 5th March 2022 – these are a great way to see what progress has been made on the loco – we visited last year, you can see what we got up to by clicking here.
