34081 92 Squadron  

 
92 Squadron back at the NVR in 2010

 34081 92 Squadron is now back at the Nene Valley Railway.

 

92 Squadron a Southern Railway Battle of Britain class 4-6-2 , returned on 24th May 2010 to Nene Valley Railway out of ticket and in need of a full overhaul.

In the photo above it is out side the new shed at Wansford on Sunday 11th of July 2010 befor a full overhaul was started at the Nene Valley.

 the first overhaul of 92 Squadron
 
This photo is the start of the first overhaul of 92 Squadron, out in the open at Wansford in 1973/4(?) not to long after it came from Barry.

The Battle of Britain Locomotive Society owners of 92 Squadron had this locomotive at the Nene Valley Railway for 21 years with a lot of the work done outside on its first overhaul from its ex-Barry state, be for going into the shed to finish the overall be for its first steaming in December 1997. It then ran at the Nene Valley until 2003.

It then went to the North Norfolk Railway were it ran on the railway. It then needed it next full overhaul. The Battle of Britain Locomotive Society asked the Nene Valley Railway, if it would like them back? The NVR said yes.

Hopefully now the NVRs Class 5 City of Peterborough, needs its next  full overhaul, 92 Squadron will soon be back in steam.

In 2014 work got under way and it hoped that it was hoped it would not be too long befor it was back in steam.

Update in 2016

The good news is that in 2016 the locomotive was back in one bit at the Southern Steam Gala and nearly ready to pull its first fair paying train with just the last things like geting the paint work right to do.

A full overhaul with all parts removed and restored has this time been done in a warm shed, not out in the open

Full and lots of up to date photos and lots details on how the overhaul went and just how much work is needed are at:-

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a webe site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, and signal boxes any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos ot heritage railways.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and GBRf are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos and video. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
