Y14 Overhaul Appeal

During a routine scheduled boiler test in May'24 an engineering surveyor identified a potential problem with a number of firebox side stays such that further examination and testing was required. Given the number of stays that appear to be confirmed to have broken, the boiler has to be considered a failure. Given the amount of work that would be involved, and the cost to undertake the replacement of the defective stays, weighed against the time remaining on the ten-year boiler certificate, which expires in July'24, it is not considered a viable proposition to carry out a repair.


The Y14 has been withdrawn from service before the expiry of its ten-year boiler certificate, plans are being developed to organise the engine's full overhaul.
