I heard though that there is a spare pannier boiler so that when the panniers will just route through boilers?


I'm no expert but I think - and having a look at my Pictorial Record book it looks like it - that the 1500 Class panniers and the 5700 Class panniers had different boilers.

The 1500 is shown as a GWR standard no. 10 boiler and looks like it is tapered, but the 5700 looks like a parallel boiler.

The 5700 panniers include 'our' 5764 and 7714, plus the spare boiler from the scrapped 3612.

Can anyone confirm the above and, if so, that the 'spare' pannier boiler would be for 5764/7714 and not 1501?

Thank you.

Patrick


All correct Patrick
Agreed Adrian but I can't, for the life of me, remember what the number of a matchbox's boiler is.

So if I have got this right the spare boiler is for ever 7714 or 5764 whichever needs it first? Meaning that ever of those panniers would be a quick overhaul? (ie. not entering engine house)

Both Panniers are due out of boiler ticket next year, however 7714 is more likely to be stopped first. 7714 is the more likely candidate.

Spare boiler is intended for 7714 which is expected become a failure anytime between now and next year and will give it a reasonably quick turnround and back in service for late 2010
5764 finishes towards late 2010

That's the theory. At present the spare boiler still needs a lot of work.

7714 is going to be reboilered during 2010 using the spare boiler that is currently being refurbished.

The raffles for 47383 has secured the purchase of the copper needed for the eventual overhaul of the engine. The copper purchase involves several engines as there was a minimum order quantity, which SVR would have been unable to fund without the support of loco support groups and the SVRA raffle. Also the fall in the price of copper is likely to be only temporary so a strategic purchase now has cushioned the Railway for several years to come.

A boilerless 1501 noted parked up at the rear of Platform 2 at Bridgnorth this morning, so it appears to be being worked on.

What are the plans on livery (LMS red would look nice! (joke!)).
I know you get the same choice as a model T - Any colour as long as it is black but any plans to change the crest this time? Just wondered!

Actually on reflection, Garter blue would suit it's racing lines and would be the ideal colour for 1501 during it's world record speed attempt Shocked Rolling Eyes Shocked
