New loco spruced up for its weekend visitors

Members of the LMS Patriot group were on hand in the shed at Llangollen Railway this week to give the frames of The Unknown Warrior a coat of black paint ready for when it is shown to visitors this weekend.

The locomotive is being faithfully built from scratch by volunteers from the group to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War Armistice in 2018.

The smokebox now features the door with smoke deflectors attached.

Escorted parties of visitors will be given guided tours of the building project tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday to coincide with the railway's Remembrance weekend.
