90733 Maintenance Update

It was announced recently that 90733 was withdrawn in December with work required that would prevent the locomotive from attending the Winter Steam Gala. This was due to the Number 1 flue failing, not a simple task to rectify.

On investigation the decision was taken to remove a further 7 flues and 8 new ones ordered. Here are a selection of images from inside the locomotive giving a taste of what is involved for our staff and volunteers.
