The Class G5 Locomotive Company raised two-thirds of the money to purchase brake components as part of the Put The Brakes On appeal.
The team have taken delivery of the main brake shaft, brake shaft brackets, brake rods and cornering loops but are now hoping to raise an additional Â£ 6,000 to complete the appeal.
Updated design and construction
The sleeper bodies have been delivered: they look really great in real life and turned out to be a great attraction for those who have visited our workshop. These were purchased with funds from the Cash for Crossheads appeal.
They still need a lot of work like white metallization, cotter pin placement, and oil cans soldering before they can be said to be complete!
We have placed the order for the rear sandboxes and expect them to be delivered before Christmas.
