Following a recent, very generous donation, the WLA's Bogie Appeal for D1013's bogie overhaul has now surpassed £28k! Although the WLA were unable to progress the NLHF route, plans are being progressed to undertake an overhaul, similar to the one carried out on D1062, plus a bit more.
Engineering Co-ordinator, Darren Shelmerdine, has outlined his initial thoughts on carrying out this essential work:
Quoatations for the above work will be sought over the next few weeks. A big thank you for everyone who has contributed so far! Our target for this work is £30k but even if we achieve this, we can always spend more...!
