The working party at Shillingstone over the weekend went well, with many components secured and moved on to Nemesis Rail for further storage. This includes the cab structure, which will be brought inside to protect it from the elements until it can be fitted to the frames. I have attached a selection of photographs taken over the weekend and of the offload yesterday.

Working Party at Shillingstone

For the information of any members who may not be aware, there will be a working party at Shillingstone on the North Dorset railway over the weekend of 24/25th March. The container of parts will be opened, and emptied, the container re-sited and some of the contents, along with the cab structure and the bogie plate frames will be relocated to safe, dry storage at a different venue. It is hoped that the cab can be refurbished at its new home after being outside in all weathers for the last 5 years, prior to eventual fitment to the frame structure. Anyone who is free to help out will be most welcome to assist the working party. Three members of the council of management will be in attendance, getting their hands dirty. Please feel free to come along and make yourselves known.
