Jinty 3F Boiler Leaves For Reconditioning

The boiler 14299 from the LMS 0-6-0T Jinty has left the Midland Railway-Butterley destined for North Norfolk Railway.  Here, reconditioning work will take 6-8 months to complete and the boiler will return with a 10 year boiler certificate. During this time work will get underway restoring many other component parts of engine 47357.

Key tasks that are part of the refurbishment include repairing the throatplate, re-securing the firebox, tubing, checking rivets and welds as well as periodic inspections for certification.
