After several months of negotiations, we have completed an agreement to obtain technical assistance from Brush Traction to help with our overhaul of 89001. 

We are in the very rare position of being granted access the Brush Traction design archives. We have been loaned the design file for the locomotive and a considerable amount of supporting correspondance relating to its' service with both BR and GNER.

We gratefully acknowledge the considerable contribution that Brush Traction and Wabtec have made to the Class 89 restoration project.
