Boiler Stay Replacement

We were asked to provide coded welding for the replacement of boiler side stays for the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway, The Double Fairlie locomotive had been suffering from breaking and leaking boiler side stays.

Boston Lodge fitters drilled the exsisting stays out, with the help of a heritage apprentice, we refitted the new stays

All Tig welded to latest Bs En Iso 9606-1-2017 spec...

We have undertaken a new welding procedure to qualify our welders to this spec..

Boiler has now passed a Boiler Inspection and Hydraulic test
