80097 boiler leaves for restoration

The boiler for 80097 has now left the ELR for restoration work in the North East as specialist work is required in order the boiler to steam again by contractors.

The boiler is planned to return to Bury in 12 months time complete with a 10 year ticket which will then see all hands to the pump to ready the locomotive for its first steaming in preservation.

Work on 80097 will now focus on preparing the frames for the acceptance of the boiler once it returns from its renovation work.
