Engineering update - March 2013

Stretcher number 5 - the final stretcher that is needed for 'The Unknown Warrior' was delivered to the Llangollen Railway Works during March, after being cast at the Boro Foundry. The Lye foundry near Stourbridge has previously cast the other four frame stretchers, bogie centre pin, and driving wheels for 'The Unknown Warrior'.

The bogie frame plates were cut during March at Morgan UK Ltd. Fabrications of Tyseley and were delivered to Tyseley Loco Works where assembly of the bogie will take place.


Stretcher number 5 and the pattern that was made to cast it are seen at the Llangollen Railway Works, shortly after arrival.
