The Standard 4 Loco Preservation Society AGM took place on Saturday night and those present were informed that the boiler successfully passed its hydraulic test for the insurance company a week ago, at Crewe. This of course will be followed by the steam test which is due in the next two weeks. It is anticipated that the boiler will be delivered to Haworth at the end of April. Once the boiler is received back at the loco shed, further boiler work is required when it is replaced in the frames. As always it will be ready when it is ready and not before but at the time of writing the project is on target for completion by the end of the year.
So not too long to wait for a retake of the 16th June 1996 photograph of 75078 on GN Straight on the climb out of Keighley.
