KWVR’s running locomotives

Among our recent work over the winter was the successful completion of welding repairs to two of Keighley & Worth Valley Railway’s running locomotives, 4F No. 43924 & BR standard No. 75078 that required interim copper firebox repairs before next steamings.

No dismantling was necessary only the draining of water and removing some fire bars with entry via the fire hole.

Welding was carried out to Lloyd’s Register approved weld procedures to ASME 9 code for welding in position and completed welds subjected to Non-Destructive Testing.
