Tender Water Gauge Fitted

 76084 has been running for almost a year without a tender water gauge. It doesn't sound much but not knowing the water level in the tender makes operations somewhat uncertain.
Frequent stops at the water tower to ensure she is topped up has been the norm. Now 76084 need only visit the water tower as and when needed.


The water gauge was fitted during her annual examination by our 'Engineering Team' shown here in front of 76084. They are, from left to right, Mel Rutter, Mal Rutter and Dave Husband. Not in the pic was John Oldcorn who fitted the new laminate glass cab windows - a requirement of network rail for locos on the mainline.

Nice to know she passed her examination with some ease - all down to a quality restoration job. A big thank you from all of us armchair supporters.
