If you follow our Facebook and Twitter pages, you'll be aware that the generators out of 50007 were in a poor state when removed at Kidderminster. Following a trip to Bowers they are all now freshly overhauled, and waiting to be delivered back to Kidderminster for refitting in the loco.
I know we sound like a stuck record sometimes, but this work really does not come cheap. Do please consider making a donation or buying a share or two if you can. As you can see from these pictures, we do spend it wisely!

|What a difference a few weeks makes. When I get a moment I will add some of the 'before' pictures so you can see just how much work has gone into this.|
|All this looks rather cleaner than when they were first removed from the loco. Exhibit A:|
|The banding on this generator can be seen to have very visible damage. Make no mistake. This was a very large, very expensive bang waiting to happen. To all those folks that thought we were nuts to buy the loco and then pull it apart, now you see why!|
