Fenchurch 150: Overhaul Update Part 1 June 2022

With the repair section to the bottom of the boiler welded in and the tube plate set into its final position the front tube plate is finally ready to be riveted into place using the modified and upgraded hydraulic rivet squeezer especially adapted for this task. Once the front tube plate has been fully riveted into position the boiler tubes can be fitted and expanded into place in preparation for the boilers hydraulic & steam tests.
