2857 is a 1918-built locomotive that returned under its current boiler ticket in 2011. In late summer 2017 she was taken out of traffic for planned mechanical work. This page includes news from social media and elsewhere.

2857 will be having its cylinders bored out and liners fitted to take it back to standard size. This will be the first time in preservation it has run with standard sized pistons and cylinders.

A video posted on Facebook today (closed group) showed 2857's cylinder re-bore.
