The Wickham has been out and about today and will be providing services at the Llangollen Railway until Thursday.
In the workshops at Llangollen the Wickham has had an exam so that both operable sets will be available to cover the next three week’s running. The right hand heater which had become noisy had a replacement motor fitted and a shutdown relay was adjusted.
More progress has been made with Class 127 51618. The cab roof has been lifted into position and new plywood cut and primed for use in the rebuild.
Over at Butterley work has continued on the Class 108 set with a replacement ceiling in the guard's van of 51907 now fitted and painted. The set has been used for five days over the past week, in one case due to the non-availability of the booked traction.
