new build Grange Class...

Inside the shed on 23rd April 2009 is what the Steam, Steel and Stars 2 Gala was all about. Raising money towards the completion of new build GWR Grange class 4-6-0 6880 Betton Grange.
Here we have the frames and the cab. Elsewhere on the railway is the boiler and lots of other parts just waiting to be fitted.

add commentComments:
This series of numbers for the former GWR Grange Class 4-6-0 locomotives ended at 6879 Overton Grange, so this is a completely new build to the 65 year old drawings. No Granges survived the cutter's torch. There is a web site for the build, with the latest information on progress.
