The normal practice on heritage railway steam locomotives is for several small boiler tubes to be pulled out at five years. If they are found to be still serviceable indicating that the rest are, they are replaced and the boiler (and hence locomotive) is given another two years.

The boiler work at Hepscott during 76084’s restoration was performed to a very high standard. Also, the boiler during the past 5 years has been kept in very good condition. These two points together allows the boiler after examination to have its ticket renewed annually.

It was decided to change all the small tubes at the 5 year inspection. This work was performed at Weybourne in January 2018. This means that 76084’s boiler should be serviceable right to the end of the boiler’s 10 year ticket.

All the 156 small boiler tubes that have been replaced have been sponsoring mainly by shareholders and a small number of supporters.

The 76084 Locomotive Company Limited are very grateful for this financial support. The Roll of Honour will remain available on this website so people can see who have been so generous.

Thank you to you all
