Frame Stretchers Delivered to Llangollen

Four frame stretchers were delivered to the Llangollen Railway Works during December 2011 and are awaiting fitting to the frames of 'The Unknown Warrior'.

The stretchers which were cast from new patterns made by Eddie Mocraft at the Boro Foundry, were machined before delivery to Llangollen. The four stretchers arrived at Llangollen in protective plastic sheeting.

The stretchers will be fitted between the frame plates of 'The Unknown Warrior' to enable a rigid assembly to be built. New drawings for the fifth stretcher are being completed. 

Genuine LMS Buffers Obtained for The Unknown Warrior

The LMS-Patriot Project has acquired a set of genuine LMS buffers for 'The Unknown Warrior'. Two of the Buffers will be used on the loco which is being assembled at the Llangollen Railway Works and the other two are suitable for the ex Barry scrapyard Fowler tender which was dismantled at Barry Rail Centre, in South Wales.
