News and Information
Sadly an extra year has been added to the projected overhaul completion date due to Coronavirus.
May this year will see the 60th anniversary of the introduction of D7000 and it would be fitting if work was progressing once again with D7029 at this time.
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.
More details on D7029's history can be accessed via the links panel to the left.
