The locomotive will be doing some more running in turns
later in the month with the intention being to run it on 18th August, 20th
to 25th August and over the August Bank Holiday 50's/60's event on 27th/28th
August. The engine has possibly two bookings at other railway galas during
September but, in the absence of 3803 whilst it awaits the return of it
rear wheelset from Ian Riley's works in Bury, the SDR would like to use
4160 in its place in the roster.
For the full story of the Overhaul of 4160 under contract
at the Buckfastleigh works of the South Devon Railway have a look at the
following page which contains all the links.
