‘F5’ WILL STILL BE BUILT AT TYSELEY

Steam Railway (UK) - - News -

Tyseley Lo­co­mo­tive Works is still ex­pected to erect the frames of GER 2‑4‑2T No. 789, the Holden F5 Lo­co­mo­tive Trust has clar­i­fied. Although the group is dis­cussing a pos­si­ble move to the North Nor­folk Rail­way (SR465), this will take place once the frames are erected at the Birm­ing­ham works. With all CAD work for the frames com­plete, it is hoped that they can be com­pleted by the end of the year ‑ but they must then be moved, to make space for Tyseley’s in­creas­ing con­tract work. El­liot Pow­ick, the group’s Chief Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer, has al­most com­pleted the CAD draw­ings for the Stephen­son valve gear, and quotes are ex­pected im­mi­nently for the wheels, tyres, axles and axle­boxes, al­low­ing de­tailed cost­ings to be fi­nalised for the bot­tom end.
