K160 Update – February 2022

Work on K160 during February has progressed well.  We have had good numbers at our Saturday work days.  The pictures with this blog show some of the progress on the locomotive.  The smoke box metal, rings, and piping is there.  The wheel springs have been sent to a contractor for refurbishment.  The ash pan which is at the workshop at Maldon is nearly finished.  Last Saturday’s work included attention to the pony truck and cab floor.  To generate momentum the K160 Facebook page has been cranked up and we now have approaching 200 members.  If you want to attend work days please contact John Hoy or Stuart Phemister.  We also believe we have received a generous donation of steel from a company which will be important to both us in this project and Steamrail generally.
