January 2013 update:
5820- our full time staff are working hard to return this loco to traffic in time for our peak trains this summer. Latest things to happen are external pipe runs, smokebox door, air pump and cab have now been fitted.
90733 - one wheel set remains to be completed, axleboxes machined and refitted and then placed back under the loco, the loco then needs valve setting and running in prior to service. This machine should be back hauling trains in the spring.
34092 - a small group continue to refit parts to the loco following the reinstatement of the boiler. No date has yet been set for a return to traffic.
85 - The frames of this loco are now 3/4 overhauled however the boiler has not been started. A survey is currently underway.
75078 - this loco is making steady progress with two driving wheel sets out of the frames at the moment. The boiler is still at LNWR Crewe and again is making steady progress, more attention will focus on this loco following the completion of 5820.
752 - No significant progress.
