Significant milestone reached in the restoration of 4561

The team at Williton have this week lowered the cylinder assembly into position within the mainframes and having placed nuts and bolts through the main and extension frames the assembly was levelled and the crane slings removed.
The opportunity was then taken to put 4561’s smokebox on its saddle and the team are really pleased to report that it fits. This is quite a milestone stage and the WSRA Trustees are extremely pleased with progress. Chairman Mike Sherwood said “Seeing the smokebox back in position after all these years is brilliant. It’s great progress and we congratulate Ryan and his team.”
