75069 returns to traffic
Following repairs, a steam test on BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 No. 75069 was successful and she will return to traffic on diagram AN1 on Friday 6 September. Details of all locomotives rostered for use can be found on the 'Meet our Locomotives' page.
On 22 July she collided with a fallen tree and suffered a derailed wheelset. There was considerable damage inflicted on the front footsteps, guard irons, lower running plate grab handles, right hand cylinder drain cocks, steam heat pipework and wheel flats on the main driving wheels. The below photo from Jim Norman from 10 August shows repairs underway.
