Rail (UK) - - Network -

Two Vir­gin Trains East Coast (VTEC) ap­pren­tices from Craigentinny de­pot in Ed­in­burgh have com­pleted a week-long sec­ond­ment at the A1 Steam Lo­co­mo­tive Trust in Dar­ling­ton.

They helped to shape and fab­ri­cate boiler cladding for new-build ‘P2’ 2-8-2 steam lo­co­mo­tive 2007 Prince of Wales, which is un­der con­struc­tion.

VTEC En­gi­neer­ing Di­rec­tor John Doughty said: “Our spon­sor­ship of the A1 Steam Lo­co­mo­tive Trust gives our ap­pren­tices the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence a very valu­able taste of the heav­ier side of rail­way me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing.”
