AN IMMINENT return to service is on the cards for Lambton, Hetton & Joicey Collieries Kitson 0-6-2T No. 29 (4263/1904) as its overhaul nears completion at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s Grosmont works.

The popular loco has been out of service since late-2014 when a crack was discovered in its cylinder block.

A new cylinder block has subsequently been fitted, and after reassembly, repairs and painting the loco began running-in on July 22.
