Hopefully this is the most suitable place for this thread. We all know just how devastating asbestos can be so with that in mind can anyone advise with regard to boiler lagging asbestos removal from a small (derelict) standard gauge 0-4-0 saddle tank. Removal obviously needs to be carried out by licensed contractors operating within HSE legislation, but how does this work when your loco needs stripping to expose the asbestos, for example lifting the saddle tank and removing cladding? Do the removal contractors do this work? Can anyone recommend a removal contractor and also does anyone have any idea of how much it might cost? Presumably this is not a cheap exercise. What about if one wanted to move the loco by road? Is this still possible with asbestos content but suitable wrapped? And I’ve heard there are laws against selling locos etc with asbestos content. The HSE website contains plenty of information regarding asbestos in the home and workplace but quite understandably doesn’t cover ‘heritage’ issues. Is there anywhere on the web where more information can be gleaned? Lots of questions I know but hopefully the knowledge is out there! Thanks, James.
