Manning Wardle 0-4-0ST No. 14
No. 14 Brill
This sole remaining representative of the Manning, Wardle design of 0-4-0ST, which Brian Clifford has been restoring in the Brill yard has been test steamed. This revealed the need to replace some bottom rows of boiler tubes and this work is in hand.
No. 14 was rescued from its isolation at the end of the Brill siding by a temporary track laid from the restoration building centre road. The rich blue livery suits Brill very well indeed and the Great Eastern Railway effect is heightened by the simulated copper capped chimney. We look forward to seeing Brian's latest ex-works engine in steam in 1976.
