7754 at the works - Cyril Rogers

This is a newspaper clipping of the 7754 at The Works. Cyril Rogers worked on its restoration. It's now at the Llangollen Railway Society and still working as a tourist train. Again thanks to Cyril's family allowing us all to see his work (more at www.Tredegar.co.uk/CyrilRogers)

Another picture of the loco, this time taken at the works.

Linda his daughter also added, "This is locomotive 7754 almost ready for work again. The writing on the tank saying 'Last train for Gun Hill' and 'For sale, any offers over 7,000' is my father's. He's also put the registration number of his old Ford Anglia - TUH 608 - under the number plate."

Time for another picture of the loco from the Cyril Rogers collection.

His family added on this photo, "Almost the finished article, just before it left The Works. I would imagine the pictures date from around 1962/3"
