Blue Peter on TV again!

In case you missed it, our very own Blue Peter was on TV last week in… yup, you guessed it: Blue Peter! Barney, Lindsey and Radzi have been following our team at LNWR Heritage as they work to restore Blue Peter to mainline running condition.

This episode saw Lindsey working with Steve and the team from the boiler department to help create a replacement part of Blue Peter’s firebox, an essential component if she is to return to steam.

Under the guidance of our expert boiler smiths Lindsey used a blowtorch to heat the metal ready for shaping. This tough task required the use of, as Lindsey put it “a massive hammer” and plenty of whacks!
