Locomotive no 34046
Further testing at the East Lancs Railway revealed the need for additional work on the locomotive and tender brake system which is expected to be completed very shortly. It is now planned to undertake main line testing in June 2013.
After unexpected delays, work on Braunton by Riley and Sons is now largely complete. The work has included retyring the wheels, refettling bearings, completion of air brake installation together with other equipment required for mainline running. The locomotive returned to steam in mid-December and was used on the Christmas Santa trains on the East Lancashire Railway. Mainline light and loaded test runs are now being planned for the new year.
