Wissington Steam Tested

Another milestone inWissington's restoration came when the locomotive was lit and brought into light steam on the 19th February.

This was to test all of the valves, joints and pipework that had been fitted in the previous weeks. The locomotive successfully reached a boiler pressure of 100psi but did not move under steam. It was returned to Weybourne shed in the afternoon to rectify severaul faults that were found during the process.
