This however wasn’t the case, the regulator would not work (stayed open), injectors would not work and safety valves wouldn’t hold 15psi. Plus a number of other steam leaks. The engine had also been spray painted without being taken apart first.

The boiler was removed to give access to remove the superheaters and regulator assembly. This was repaired. Some pipe work was replaced, the injector clacks altered and the steam leaks taken care of. Safety valves replaced completely.

The engine is now a reliable performer, with plenty of power and very free steaming..

“What else would you expect from a 9f?”
