Tender Tank Trial Fitted

Tender Tank Trial Fitted

In preparation for the final fitting of the tender tank to the chassis, in late June 2018, the tank was trial fitted.

This allowed us to check for any problems and finalise our plans to fit the tank towards the end of the summer. A few pipes and pieces of conduit – all new to the tender – had to be “tweaked” to achieve a satisfactory fit but no major problems were found. We can now move on to preparing the workshop and chassis for the permanent fitting of the tank.
