Yesterday, Peter Hawkins of Hawkins Inspection Services Ltd, one of the sponsors of the SAC Burrell Project, completed a successful boiler inspection of the Steam Apprentice Club's 4 inch scale Burrell. The model now has a full boiler certificate but as can be seen from the photograph there is still some work to do - such as fitting the lagging.

Time is now short as the official unveiling will take place on Saturday 13th September 2014 at 11.00 am outside the NTET Exhibition Unit at the Bedford Steam Club Rally at Old Warden Park. Please come along and join in the celebrations.

Congratulations to Hugh Dyson and his team for all the hard work that has gone into this project. The skills and knowledge gained by all the youngsters who have been involved in building the Burrell is immense and will help to carry our hobby forwards into the future.
