Boiler lift for 41241

Last weekend saw a significant step in the restoration of LMS Ivatt 2-6-2 Tank 41241. As previously reported the iconic tank engine is being restored in time for the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the line in the preservation era. On Saturday 22nd February the following two images show the boiler being lifted from the frames so that a thorough inspection can be carried out to see the extent of the work required on the locomotive and its boiler.
