Warwickshire Industrial Locomotive Trust is adding to its Facebook page archive photos. With one of Warwickshire in process of being dismantled at SVR Bridgnorth in September 2011 is a comment that design work on a new boiler has been completed.

EDIT: the website news section comments

Quote:
Due to better storage facities and more volunteer labour available it has been decided to move the locomotive to Bewdley to complete the restoration. Some of the parts removed from the locomotive and other spare parts have already been moved from Bridgnorth to Bewdley and placed in secure storage.


Neither of these may be news, but I can't recall reading them before

Patrick

The trust has moved buffers and cylinder components from Bewdley to Bridgnorth. The buffers will be refitted to the front buffer beam and the cylinder covers and both cylinder castings dispatched to Timsons of Kettering. The saddle tank was moved from the head shunt into the workshop at Bridgnorth in May, which will allow work to start on repair and restoration of this item.

David Cooke has put some more images up on http://wilt.jimdo.com/section-2-2016-to-2020/

There's also reference to a 'Big Shunt' in September at SVR Bewdley, there was also reference elsewhere to 4150's boiler going to Bridgnorth

4150 complete, or as complete as can be, is going to Bridgnorth at the end of September for boiler work and riveting. The two tanks, bunker and roof that are currently stored at Bewdley will be temporarily fitted for transport by rail.
I did hear a someone mention that 2047 might be taking 4150's place at Bewdley, but nothing confirmed.
I was confused by the misspelling in that last caption and thought maybe it meant the parts had been prepped (prepared) to be fitted to the loco at Bewdley. Looking at that Acrow now though, I think it actually means the shelves have been propped to prevent them falling over when the stores van is moved during the shunt.
