Her winter maintenance now completed, Eva returned to the park ready for the new season, Monday 3rd March. Once there a successful steam test was carried out which completed her winter overhaul. She was re-attached to her tender and is now ready and waiting for the 28th of March – The first day of this years running (weather permitting). Here are some pictures of her after all the work had been completed, looking really resplendant in her new paint work, especially noticeable on the black smoke box.
Ther last picture from before the maintenance and paint job.
