Steaming ahead!

Slipping this in before Christmas, we’re thrilled to announce that after a long and extensive process we’ve selected Keyte Smith Ltd. of Bingham, Nottinghamshire as the supplier for the outer smokebox door and the contract for the work is currently being drawn up.

Work will commence first thing in the new year. Meanwhile you can support the project with a donation to help speed us along to fabricating the next part. A link to the page on how you can assist can be found at the top of this site. As announced in our latest newsletter we’re in the process of looking into the plates for the front part of the frames.

Further details regarding this and the pending outer smokebox door fabrication will be published here early in the new year. Until then we wish all our followers, supporters and readers a safe and joyous Christmas and a enjoyable and prosperous new year.

2013 will be an exciting year for the project and we want to thank all our supporters in 2012 for helping to get us to where we are today. Thanks to you we’ve come a long way in a short space of time. With your further support 2013 will prove to be a year of substantial progress.
