We currently have a total of 24 frame stay and hornblock castings which have been machined (which we asked our contractors to store for us until Tornado left Darlington Locomotive Works as space there has been at a premium) ready to fit to the frames. Using some of the 1,065 driven and fitted bolts and self-locking nuts for frame assembly that have been delivered by Hawk Fasteners at Middlesbrough, these will keep the team busy until the larger fabricated frame stays start to arrive.
