Depot Report 23.12.23

Updated: Dec 26, 2023

The last working party before Christmas saw work concentrated on 55019.

After investigation into an oil leak and subsequent repairs and preventative maintenance

( thanks to John Pepper for undertaking the electrical work on the replacement at home), the rebuild of No. 1 nose end commenced with both exhausters being lifted into place. 

No. 19’s brake cylinders arrived back from being overhauled, and all 12 were fitted to the bogies.

The original style door locks on all three locos are now serviceable.

(Report and photographs by Nigel Julian.)

(Photographs show - three of the 12 overhauled brake cylinders bolted into place; 55019 with its nose end doors open awaiting the lifting in of the exhausters; a close-up of one exhauster being moved into place, ready to be lifted into No. 19.)
