Bruce has finally returned from the Steam Engine Hospital! He went down to Bristol in late 2014 to have a complete overhaul and a brand new boiler and returned to the Railway just before Christmas 2015! Our on-site engineer has also given him a brand new coat of paint. Have a look below at how shiny he is in the pictures!A spray booth was set up in the Engine Shed to respray every single part of Bruce!The Tender was sanded, primed and two coats of glossy black were then sprayed on in our spray booth! Some more images of the Guard Iron and the Tender once they had been sprayed!New vinyl lettering has been applied to the side of the Tender too.The final product….a brand new shiny Bruce all ready for action! Bruce will be making some appearances in the first few weeks of opening during his running in process before taking his first passengers around the track!
