Since the withdrawal of S15 class 825 from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway earlier this year, there has been a short period of time when no S15 class locomotives are operation in this country. Fortunately, it looks as though this will change sooner rather than later!The Bluebell Railway’s S15 class is nearing completion of it’s overhaul. The overhauled boiler and cab have been refitted, which means that after some finishing touches it will be ready for testing soon!
Since completion of the East Grinstead extension, the Bluebell Railway has launched it’s “Keep Up The Pressure” campaign to help fund overhaul’s of another locomotives to get the fleet up to full strength. If you can spare a pound or a few you are able to donate, please check out the Bluebell Railway website (click here for more). Some of the other locomotive’s being overhauled can be seen in the pictures below.
