Thank you

I'm truly grateful for all the help given by the following:

Tony Thomas, records officer of the Sentinel Drivers' Club for pictures and reference information.

John, Justin and Grant Goold of J R Goold Vintage Steam Restorations Ltd for their many mechanical engineering refurbishment feats of valves, pipework, superheater, steam brake cylinder and much more.

Richard Philips and Andy Melrose of Mendip Steam Restoration Ltd for the boiler repairs, a new handbrake screw & nut, a tortuous new main steam pipe, chimney base machining and invaluable advice.

Peter Hawkins, boiler inspector, of Hawkins Inspection Services Ltd for his advice, humour and certificates.

Peter Trenchard of the Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust, Washford, for photos and background to 7109.

VP, author of Vegplotting for her Blogger tuition, washing, cooking and anything else that a first wife does!

The Somerset & Dorset Railway Heritage Trust at Midsomer Norton station for use of their premises.

Eric Miles & George Colbourne from the Avon Valley Railway for providing replica works plates for 7109.

John Coleshill and Bob Edwardes, for Joyce's nameplates.

Richard Nixon and all from the Sentinel Drivers Club for advice, encouragement, drawings and allowing me to be their locomotives' officer.

The many, many people who have made donations, some substantial, towards the restoration. Some have wished to be kept low profile so I'll not name any names. You know who you are and I am more than grateful for your encouragement.

If I've missed anyone out, please let me know!
