34023 / 21C123 Blackmore Vale

Post by 35012 on Sun Jul 04, 2010 9:38 am

The Bulleid Society have updated their main leaflet / membership application form which now indicates that a new inner firebox for 21C123 / 34023 is expected to cost in the region of £150,000.

The Bulleid Society have started to accumulate parts for 34023's next overhaul in the shape of a new set of thermic syphons as part of an order with another loco group. That should save a tidy sum!

Who is the other loco group? I think they should concentrate on the new Firebox first.

I am not sure who the other group is but I will try and find out. From what the Bulleid Society were saying at the Bluebells 50th the intention is to purchase the required parts for the Boiler / Firebox. There will not be any activity on the loco itself until B4 Normandy is finnished (The Bulleid Society are now custodians of Normandy). It is hoped that Normandy can be turned round in 12 months with the Bluebell doing the boiler work.

They have spent some £15:000 on the new thermic syphons and have also ordered the specialist boiler plate profile / section for the new foundation ring.

Good news. So any date of workshop activity and being moved in to be stripped and overhauled?

None as of yet, I am not even sure if the loco is in the Bluebells current 10 year plan so as things stand the Bulleid Society will probably start the overhaul on their own after the B4 Normandy is finnished. Fund raising continues for B.V. and should be significantly boosted when the new Bulleid Society shop opens around Easter.

Currently no date is set for the commencement of 34023's overhaul but components continue to be obtained for the loco's new firebox, this will nowalso include another set of Thermic Syphons as those originally obtained are to be used on 34059.
