This exhauster was obtained along with the locomotives back in 2002, and was externally in a poor condition at that time. The machine does however rotate freely and internally looks to be reasonable on first inspection. The plan is for Bowers to overhaul components from this machine and one of the Class 37 exhausters obtained from Booths in June 2009 to make one good overhauled Class 50 exhauster. This will give us a pair (with the exhauster obtained from Unipart) for use in 50030. The exhausters currently in 50030 will be put into store for use in 50029 when the time to overhaul machines for that locomotive comes. 23rd October 2009.
