7027 Thornbury Castle

The UK's last remaining unrestored 'Castle' class locomotive is finally returning to steam.
After spending more than 50 years in various sidings around the UK, BR(W) Castle class 4-6-0 7027 Thornbury Castle has a new owner and is now being restored to working order.

7027 was purchased from the Waterman Railway Heritage Trust in 2016 and is now in under-cover storage in Somerset. A long term plan to completely restore the 1949-built locomotive has been drawn up and, as the overhaul of stablemate No 4936 'Kinlet Hall' nears completion, 7027 will move to the Birmingham base of the Tyseley Locomotive Works.
