LYN PASSES HY­DRAULIC TEST

Steam Railway (UK) - - News -

The Lynton & Barnstaple Rail­way’s new Bald­win 2-4-2T No. 762 Lyn made an­other sig­nif­i­cant step on the road to com­ple­tion on March 23, when its boiler passed a hy­draulic test. To pass, it had to con­tain 1½ times its 250lb/sq in work­ing pres­sure (375lb/sq in) for 30 min­utes with­out any leaks. The first steam test is ex­pected to take place at the end of May or early in June. In March, Lyn’s tim­ber cab was sent to a con­trac­tor who will make its steel roof and hatch.
