The loco has covered over 5000 miles since arriving at Minehead in March.
Some mechanical work is scheduled to be carried out over the winter period which will include some or all of the items below :
Cylinder liners and piston refurbishment.
Slide bar alignment.
How much of this gets done will depend upon the total work programme that the WSR loco department will have to undertake over the winter period.
