BR 92207 Blog

Read about ongoing progress with the Trust's long term project to restore this locomotive for use on the S & D line at Midsomer Norton.

October 2022

Following a long period of due diligence, during which the Trust inspected the current condition of the locomotive and also obtained a detailed inventory of all the parts currently available for the locomotive, the Trust decided to purchase the locomotive with the long-term aim to restore it to full operating condition for use on the Somerset and Dorset line at Midsomer Norton.

We were visited earlier this month (June 2023) by Richard Roper who worked in Swindon Works during the 1950s and helped in the building of 9Fs including the last builds where 92207 was constructed. He is seen standing next to a new chimney for the locomotive outside the iconic Goods Shed at Midsomer Norton South station.
