Tender Progress
Work on the new tender tank for 4930 has been continuing at Adam Dalgleish Engineering at Stockton. These recent views show the progress made in recent weeks.

o summarise recent developments, all internal baffles fitted and welded, tank sides and extension fitted and welded, rear floor plate being welded this week, new beading fitted (this was sourced from a local rolling mill with tooling made to match a sample of the original). Coal space back plate to have new beading bent and fitted this week.

The next big job will be the fitting of the “false” rivets to ensure that the tender is cosmetically correct !

Nothing major. The loco is still covered up outside. 4930 is not a priority at the moment. Work is focusing on 7802 and 7714, and now the later has moved of the jacks, 75069 has now moved onto them (or at least it is in place ready to be lifted...).

Thanks oliver. I noticed 75069's boiler was on a wagon up the headshunt last time I travelled to BH. Presumably the boiler shop is more preoccupied with contract work, unless 42968's boiler is receiving attention now.

So the question is, are there any SVR loco boilers actually inside the boiler shop at present?

813, 7802, 7714, & 42968 I think.

My understanding is that the boiler shop staff are effectively split into two teams. Half focus on contract work, and the other half do just SVR work, which is currently focusing on 7802, 7714 and 813.

Unless I am going daft there are two medium large tapered belpaire boilers in the shop, so the second one must be 75069's.

Thanks for the info folks,, even if somewhat conflicting.

The problem is, as discussed on here before, is that we don't get very much uptodate information about what is happening in our various works. Particularly the KDR carriage works, where the only comments on work in progress tend to be in SVR News. Bridgnorth boiler shop isn't much better. There are sporadic updates on the svrengineering twitter feed, -( 7714 and 7812 have featured recently)-which you can see without being a twitter follower,, but again the only real "round-up" of activity comes in SVR News. The monthly roundup on the old svr engineering website ceased a couple of years ago, and even the round-up from the GM on SVR Live is still the October-December 2014 one. The latest news on our flagship project, the diesel depot is images taken during April. Thanks to sharpo for his "on-train" movie updates.

Now unlike some other Heritage lines where the volunteers themselves provide regular updates, either as blogs,(Glos-Warks) or an "Enthusiasts" section on the railways website ( Mid-Hants) here on the SVR there just doesn't appear to be the will to disseminate uptodate happenings. Maybe people don't have the time to take a few photos and think their time is better spent getting on with the work in hand? I don't know.

Thankfully a few people do post sometimes with what they see around the SVR, and Patrick brings as much as he can together each month.

I've said enough on the this subject over time, so it is time to rest my case.

As I recall, they are 7802's and the Keighley's 41241, which is a contract job.

Patrick,

I can provide a Kidderminster Carriage Works update if you set up a thread.

Currently working on 25771 major bodywork overhaul and 35219 now wheelsets to replace the ones with bad flats.

The shunters truck is now fully overhauled and looks great.
