MEMBERS' MONTHLY BULLETIN - December 2021

Engineering 

 After a thorough technical investigation with the active cooperation of Boro Foundry, we have jointly concluded that the driving wheels cannot be repaired to the standard required. Settlement terms have been agreed constructively with Boro Foundry, who are no longer equipped to cast this type of product.  Discussions are now in progress with William Cook Cast Products on the procurement of new wheels. The original wheel pattern has been secured for collection from Tyesley Locomotive Works for this purpose.

MEMBERS' MONTHLY BULLETIN - October 2021

ENGINEERING

PRCLT completed the overhaul of 6233 towards the end of October, allowing resources to be re-allocated to 5551 work. Before that, significant further progress was made in October with component removal from the frames, in preparation for refitting to the standard required. 

Leaky Finders have fitted spring links to the tender frames and trial fitted the springs: the frames have now been sprayed and the horn blocks and spring link brackets top-coated. HBSS are continuing making the boiler slide studs.

AGM 2021

For those who couldn't attend the AGM we have reproduced the presentation in The Warrior, however because of space constraints we could not reproduce the tables at a size where they are easily legible. With this in mind we have uploaded a pdf of the presentation so that you can see the amount of work that goes into the areas of Budgeting, Project Control, Risk Management, etc. and that a system is now in place to inform exactly where the build stands. These will be updated on a regular basis.

Resource for progress at West Shed continues to be restricted by the overhaul of 6233. This was intended to be complete by the end of September, but is now expected in mid-October.
