We have some news of No.6024’s superheater header.

Crack repairs completed just before ‘lockdown’ have recently been followed up by remachining of the superheater element seats, the manufacture of new studs and conical washers used to secure the elements into the header. Shortly the header and the brand new elements will be subject to an insurance company witnessed hydraulic test. Once successfully completed and work is able to restart in Minehead refitting the header (and chimney), followed by the elements, will be high on the agenda.
