The Boiler Inspector on 1604’s case at Yaxham has given the green light to complete the work of combining the boiler, firebox and smokebox following his inspection last week. This represents another major advance in the repair and refurbishment of the Middy’s own locomotive. Still lots to do, but this really was an essential part of the process which needed to be achieved before the final stage of returning the complete boiler construction back to Brockford to be reunited with the rolling chassis.

1604 will become No.4 in the Middy’s numbering system and the first addition for over 100 years.
