New ten­der for Raven­glass Krauss

Steam Railway (UK) - - Narrow Gauce -

A new ten­der will be built for the Raven­glass & Eskdale Rail­way’s ‘Span­ish’ Krauss 4-6-2 No. 8457, a move con­sid­ered to be cheaper than adapt­ing the one it ar­rived with. The con­di­tion of the orig­i­nal boiler was as ex­pected, al­though the in­jec­tor feed pipework re­quires mod­i­fy­ing. So far, the ap­peal for No. 8457 has raised £20,000, and a com­pe­ti­tion has been started to sug­gest names and liv­er­ies in re­turn for a £4 do­na­tion. The en­gine was im­ported from Spain in Fe­bru­ary (SR450/1).
