Some further news re the new George:
Please see below image of upper parts of the cab and the roof. The order for this was placed on Friday May 15. This is a substantial metal fabrication weighing over half a ton and I think it is pretty plain to see that we have retained far more of the LNWR ethos than the LMS did when it crudely cut the cabs down to fit on the rest of their network! Next step we expect to be the rear frames from Tata Steel (hopefully quite soon). We also hope to give small groups of supporters the opportunity to come and see the front part of the locomotive (smokebox, chimney,
front buffer beam etc. once lock-down is lifted -would people who are interested please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
