The P2 Steam Locomotive Company have announced that the wheelsets have been completed by South Devon Railway (Engineering) for steam locomotive No.2007 Prince of Wales.

After a long journey on the back of a truck, the wheelsets have now arrived at Darlington Locomotive Works. The arrival now means the wheels can be attached to the frame and for the locomotive to become a rolling chassis for the very first time. This is a major step forward in the construction of this P2 locomotive.

It marks another milestone in the completion, with the hopes still set on a 2021 completion date. If you would like to know more about the P2 class and the project behind the locomotive, then please click here to view our Project Information.

I have had an interest in Railways for as long as I can remember. I am a member of a number of heritage railways and actively volunteer at 2 of them. I enjoy all types of railways, real life, model and simulations.

I started RailAdvent in 2014 and am the main editor of the site.
