8001 Power Unit Refitted

March 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Finally, 8001/20001 has had its power unit re-fitted last week after a light overhaul and the generator repairs that caused the loco to be taken out of service carried out. 

Of course the crane lift was not without incident, the crane didn't up first thing on Friday morning because there was a problem with payment, resulting in Chris driving to Ilkeston to to hand deliver the cash, then escort the crane back to the Midland Railway. It was a tight fit, but after applying a little crow bar pressure was fitted back on the mounts and roof refitted, ready to piped up and reconnected.

Well done to all involved, the lift was the culmination off a lot of work over the past few months.
