With the new frames now at Rileys we are on the home stretch for starting the frame assembly. With your help we can have all the pieces in one place and start the assembly in late 2014 / early 2015.
But we need your help!

The new frames have been delivered to Ian Riley & Son (Bury)
The new frames and horn guides have now been profiled, horn guides welded in place and all holes and ports drilled.
The photo above shows one of the frame plates being hoisted up. The workmanship at Robert Stephenson Engineering is superb! The large machine behind was used to profile the plates.
The frames have now been moved to Ian Riley & Son (Bury) where they will remain outside to aid in destressing. The plates have been carefully rested on levelled sleepers to prevent distortion until we start to bolt and rivet all of the parts together.
The old frames will now be recycled with the proceeds going towards the final frame components and frame assembly plan.
