Bit of a State

Began work after nearly completing restoration of loco chassis. Stripped down - refurbished brake gear and buffers. New plate work for coal chute. Replaced internal baffle plates. Needle gunned and repainted. Lost volunteers etc. Thought not much to be done for contractors - BIG mistake!
May 2016 transported to Llangollen, Estimated to complete by DEL - £20 - £25,000 - Oh Gosh, I wish it had been. Extensive work required - double original estimate. Hoping to hire Tender to another group to recoup some cash until we need it. Hope to be ready DEC 17

Restoration is finished and an agreement in place to hire it to Betton Grange Society for 2/3 years to provide funds to 3814 restoration fund until it is required.
