Sir Archibald Sinclair Plate


No. 34059 Sir Archibald Sinclair is based on the
Bluebell Railway, Sussex.

Currently undergoing extensive firebox repairs and overhaul.
See Latest News for updates.

During 2021 most of the work on the boiler stays has been completed, the chassis has been re-wheeled and the frames painted. The pistons and valves to all three cylinders are in place, also the driving wheel springs, the front and rear trucks and the Wakefield lubricators and pipework. The brake rigging and brake blocks are fitted and attention is now on refitting the motion. With Steve Czech as foreman and Simon Blaker as foreman for the boiler work, we are well on the way to seeing completion of the restoration in 2022.
