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!
