New Boiler for Brock

In 2010, the boiler for our locomotive Brock reached the end of its life after 40 years of service. Between 2010 and 2012 we had a new boiler designed and the technical drawings made up. The drawings then underwent an approval process under the Pressure Equipment Directive.We are now fundraising to have a new boiler constructed to our design and fitted to the chassis of the locomotive.

Brock is a 9.5 inch gauge freelance tank/tender locomotive, designed by James Boyd and David Curwen and built by David Curwen for the Downs Light Railway in the 1970s. We are now seeking donations to fund a new boiler.
