A Happy New Year to all members and followers!
Last Month, Nick Haynes and David Stott visited “Steam Hire Ltd” to view the progress that had been made on Presidents Boiler.
So Far, the Smoke box and all of the boiler cladding has been removed to allow access for the NDT (None Distructive Testing) to take place prior to any other work on the boiler progressing.
With the smoke box removed, it now clear that it is very corroded and will need significant repair before it can be returned to service.
