Sentinel Conversion Loco takes shape (3)

Mike Hart has been keeping me informed about his progress restoring Gervase at Elsecar Heritage Railway.

In my first article, Gervase was reported as steaming for the first time in 50 years and that Locomotive Maintenance Services at The Great Central Railway, Loughborough, would be completing the restoration work.

These photos were taken by Mike during activities at Loughborough on 7th February 2013.

There are some dates already pencilled-in for Gervase's first few steaming appearances this year. I'll help to spread the word when the pencil has turned to ink!

Keep up the good work Mike.
