HTN 115 - Restoration of the O & K is going well - Keith Stevens

27th July 2006

Restoration of the O & K is going well. We are busy removing the firebox at this point in time. We have manufactured the coal bunkers, cab and deck and below are the photos of this work. We have set the valves so all we need now is the boiler. The buffer beams are now fitted at the height of 550mm above the rail.
I have fitted a double eye similar to that on the other O & K and Avonside.

Regarding the Sentinel, all this really needs now is a good clean and polish!
