WD 90775 Boiler Lifted

26th October 2012

WD 90775 moved a step closer to overhaul with the removal of her boiler at Weybourne on Friday 26th October.

The locomotive's boiler has been removed to allow it to be inspected at Chatham Steam in Kent to allow an assesment on what work is required. The locomotive failed a boiler inspection in 2009 and has not steamed since.
