Project News

New items added to the web shop.

There are some new products to view in our web shop.


On behalf of all our team I wish you a very happy New Year. I am sure you share our hope for substantial project progress in 2023.  Here is the latest update on our project.


The outside cylinders have been delivered back to West Shed following the modification and repair work at Cast Iron Welding Services. Machining is expected to start in January.

The engineering team held a Zoom meeting on 23rd December to agree plans for work in the immediate future.


The Warrior Magazine

We expect to despatch The Warrior Issue 55 to you on Monday 5th  December. The magazine contains a full account of the proceedings of our Annual General Meeting, which was held on 12th November at Kidderminster Railway Museum.


I will not repeat here the general engineering progress reported in The Warrior. However, since the Warrior went to press the repair work on the outside cylinders has now been completed, and all quality documentation required has been supplied, by Cast Iron Welding Services.
