At Thomas Smith Fasteners, we’re proud to help preserve railway history. Recently, we supplied BSW fasteners for the second overhaul of a 2' gauge steam locomotive at the Golden Valley Light Railway. Built in 1997 as a retirement project, this locomotive is a great example of traditional steam engineering.

The creator chose BSW fasteners for this project, remaining true to British heritage. Close to 30 years later, the locomotive needs its second major overhaul. The boiler must be thoroughly checked, and any worn parts must be replaced every ten years to keep it running safely.

At Thomas Smith Fasteners, we understand the paramount importance of quality and reliability in such historic preservation projects. It is our privilege to contribute to the smooth operation of this historic locomotive.

We are always happy to help with heritage restoration projects. Our online shop offers a range of BSW, including:

BSW Bolts
BSW Set Screws
BSW Full Nuts
BSW Nyloc Nuts

We can also manufacture BSW fasteners in-house. For more information about our BSW fasteners and other products, contact our team today.
