Tonight we are having a quick look at the latest updates from Clan Lines overhaul at Crewe Works. With Clan Line being the flagship of preserved Southern Region steam locomotives, her overhaul is being closely watched.
Work is progressing well on the locomotive with the team getting a much better idea of what is needed to be carried out on the locomotive to get her back in service. An example is that on the boiler, the lower 15 inches of the inner firebox, all the way round, needs replacing, because the plate work is getting thin. Work has started on removing the stays several hundred need replacing. The drawings for the new plate work have also been produced.
