Boiler Overhaul 18/05/15


Work is continuing on the boiler overhaul at Crewe.

The boiler has been turned on its side so that the old crown stays can be removed.

The photo shows the crown stays on the copper side of the firebox being burnt out. The stays will then be burnt out on the top of the firebox. Once they have been removed measurements can be taken for new set of crown stays to be manufactured.

The next job is to remove the foundation ring so that any repairs needed to it can be carried out.
