The Pressure is ON!
Thursday 23rd March 2017 will be a red-letter day for the 762 Club, as it was on this day that LYN passed its official hydraulic test and effectively started the ten-year clock on LYN’s new boiler.

Witnessed by the boiler inspector from British Engineering, our insurance company, and prepared by Richard Kempton, the boiler was tested to 1 ½ times working pressure.

As the working pressure of LYN is 250 psi, that meant a mighty 375 psi! The test involved no leaks for a 30 minute period. Richard took this photograph as the pressure was steadily raised. All went well and we now have the second of three tests under our belt. The final test will be the steam test, scheduled at the back end of May or early June.

Not long to go now!!
