Not one, but two new smokebox doors have arrived at Groudle!
The cast doors which are identical to both Sea Lion and Polar Bear’s doors have been cast for both Bagnall designed locomotives ; Brown Bear and Annie.
Brown Bear receiving her boiler is still a way off at the moment, but Annie’s original Smokebox door has developed a flaw, so it was decided to get two cast at the same time for both projects.
Thanks to the team at Peak Patterns for the high standard of castings and their support to the railway as always.
If you wish to help support the Brown Bear Appeal to build the locomotive, please visit the Brown Bear Appeal page on the website to view the rewards available to you for your support, thank you.
