That is the wrong photo there as thats not 78059 being rebuilt in to 84030 there as that is No. 80151 the 4MT Tank loco being overhauled there.

This is a project to create the tank engine version of the class 2 from a surviving tender loco, by extending the frames and adding the trailing truck as well as building the necessary tanks and bunker.

An album photo shows the loco as a 2-6-0 whilst in the scrapyard at Barry Docks in 1969 before removal for this project.
