New Batteries for Class 31

Volunteers gathered at Weybourne shed on Sunday 14th July to carry out works onClass 31 D5631.

As part of an ongoing investment in our Brush Type Two, which was delivered new to Norwich shed in 1960 and used to work round the world goods trains on the former M&GN lines, a new set of batteries costing several thousand pounds have been purchased.

The investment in the locomotive, which has already included the purchasing of £10,000 worth of spares is part of a wider and longer term plan to gradually increase the reliability and standard of the locomotive. The eventual aim is for D5631 to be mainline registered and restored to as-built condition.

To help make this possible, please consider supporting D5631 by joiningThe Loco Club.
