Restoration of Western Queen is under way!

Now that 2000 class Bullock Pacific Silver Jubilee has had its overhaul completed we are now moving on to 1000 Class Bullock Pacific Western Queen. This locomotive requires a heavy restoration after we obtained her at the end of 2016 in a state similar to an engine rescued from Barry Island.

Her new frames have been completed and put together along with her boiler being examined. Western Queen is the primary focus of our workshop staff in hope of having her ready and raring to go for our Surrey Borders Weekend this coming June (see our whats on section for more)

 

We will be keeping you updated via here and our Facebook page with how she is getting on.
