News and Information
It is anticipated that, once work on D821 is completed, the Hymek will be brought back inside the TMD for the completion of bodywork repairs. Once the body shell is in good order it will be possible to commence the reassembly with components already overhauled and waiting installation.
D7029 is one of four preserved 'Hymek' locomotives from the original 101 built for BR by Beyer Peacock.
Based at the Severn Valley Railway, D7029 is undergoing restoration having been out of service since 1987.
