Update Nov 2018

A working day is being planned on 56006 to tackle a range of work on the locomotive. This will range from repairs to known faults, preventative maintenance jobs and checks, to painting and general housekeeping work.

There are therefore opportunities for all C56G members to get involved with this work regardless of skills or abilities. All work will be supervised and any members who have not attended the ELR as a working volunteer will be able to try it and see whats involved and hopefully become part of the regular band of volunteers we hope to grow.

If any C56G members are interested and would like to find out more please get in touch via the e-mail address –
