New L&Y arrivals at East Lancashire Railway

By the middle of June 2024 the L&YR Radial Tank 1008 from the national collection should have arrived from York under a loan agreement with the National Railway Museum. It is destined for display in the Burt Transport Museum in Castlecroft yard.

Another L&Y item has also arrived at Bury from the estate of the late Harvey Scowcroft, this , the chimney from Saddletank 11305 has been found to be in excellent condition. It is not clear to what use it will be put (if any) as all the existing preserved L&Y locos using the same chimney were fitted with new replacements as part of a bulk order a few years ago.
