We posted A Study In Steel last week and many of you enjoyed it and asked for more, so this is the second film in the series that we are going to share with you. Follow along as it is a little slow at the start, but well worth the time to watch it through to the end. Part I is (above) and Part II is just (below).
This film follows the progress of a Jubilee class steam locomotive 5605 “Cyprus”, owned by the London Midland & Scottish Railway. Watch the fascinating process as is passes through the railway workshops during an overhaul in the 1938.
You will see an amazing process where the locomotive is stripped and mechanically restored to like new condition in only seven days. The engine then spends five days in the paint shop and heads back out on the rails for another 120,000 miles of service. You also can learn much more about the LMS here.
