|This month's; locomotive, ex-LSWR G6 built by Pete King' specifically for Lightermans Yard. The G6 was built at Nine Elms and was taken into Southern stock at the grouping and then Southern Region at Nationalisation.|
Track cleaning was the first priority, and searching for any unevenness or misalignment.
The loco yard getting a clean. Some more work to be done on ballasting!
Alan making final adjustments to the cleaning process - shiny tracks!
|Having bunkered, the G6 sets out to work the goods traffic (really testing the cleaned track).|
|Working a wide collection of stock.|
A view of the control panel and shunting yard. A great feeling when everything is working as it should!
Further discussion centred on prototypes for servo controlled point mechanisms that Keith and Alan have been developing.
Alan also showed the new brass sleeper castings for flat bottomed track
Next meeting 8 April, followed by our next exhibition appearance at Crawley 14-15 April
