Our Patron, David Buck, visits CTL Seal
  On 26 July our patron, David Buck and his wife Patricia visited CTL Seal in Sheffield to view progress with 72010 Hengist. With the Covid restrictions, this has been the first opportunity for David to see the locomotive "in the metal". David and Patricia were very impressed with the set up at CTL Seal and look forward to seeing progress.

On the same day, we confirmed that the frame extensions have now been set up dimensionally. CTL Seal will now start the process of drilling bolt holes, reaming to final size and then installing the fitted bolts to permanently fasten the frame extensions to the main frames.
