During the past 10 days, work has continued on 4930ís frames at Bridgnorth. The frames have been extensively painted following the shot-blasting, to protect them from rust. It was determined that the painting of the whole frame structure was beneficial at this stage even though several fitted bolts have been identified as being loose and will require attention in due course, which will disturb the black paintwork.

The brake hanger brackets have been refitted to the frames.

An order has now been placed with Harco Engineering Ltd., located in Brierley Hill, for the machining of the cylinder blocks

Today marks the start of widespread geographical reorganisation in the overhaul of 4930. In a carefully planned logistical exercise, the newly re-profiled locomotive wheels have been collected from the South Devon Railway Engineering Workshops at Buckfastleigh, and transported by road back to Bridgnorth Works, together with a newly pressed boiler backplate and throat plate for 4930.

Upon arrival at Bridgnorth, the wheels have been unloaded, and replaced on the road transport by 4930ís new cylinders, and those of the Dinmore Manor Groupís 3850, which are being transported to an engineering company in the West Midlands for machining.

The final part of this lengthy journey will see the new boiler platework continue its journey north to Northern Steam Engineeringís site at Stockton, where 4930ís boiler is currently under restoration.
