Seeing as I'm about and in a good mood Smile


TLW pressing the new crowns into the axle boxes.


The start of a Saturday working party to drill out the remaining rivets on the drag box. This is being done due to material corrosion so the decision was taken to replace the rear plate.


With the job well in hand, our youngest volunteer Will assists David in drilling out the rivet heads. with Will Grimmett and David Jenkins.


All six axle boxes with new crowns, just awaiting machining now to suit the journals.

Very much Great Western Railway metals. The Cambrian route was via Talerddig and Welshpool.

Yes, the train would have reached Cambrian metals at Dolgelley

Very nice photo Lewis.

It brings back memories of a holiday at Bontnewydd on the line between Bala Jn and Barmouth Jn back in the early 60's in a caravan with windows from a scrapped Lancaster bomber!

In between playing in the river and watching the Pannier tanks on the local trains pass by we would terrorise the Signalman/Crossing Keeper/Stationmaster at the station to let us go in the Signal Box!

At the end of the week the journey home was on the mail train which I assume came from Pwillheli and went via Bala Jn and the Llangollen route back home to Birmingham.

The highlight of this trip though wasn't leaning out of the train window for an eyeful of Welsh steam coal or trying to see the front of the train with your face pressed hard on the carraige window but cabbing the Manor at the head of the train during the loco change at Ruabon.

Happy times and wasnt I a lucky lad to have lived through the "real" steam era but looking back now I can see exactly how I became destined to become a railwayman!!

Apologies in advance. I'm working off a phone with a tiny screen. I've a notification that the Erlestoke Manor Fund has posted images from Llangollen on their Facebook page: could someone do the honours and post a link up please?

Thanks

There would be only one thing to top those photos

Bring back Hinton. 3 manors on Maccy shed (sorry Bewdley).
(ps - can't spell in Welsh, it'll have to be Maccy !)

Agreed - though that will shortly be upstaged by the WSR ASG 3rd - 6th October this year when the following will be in action together:
7812
7822
7827
7828

(not to mention the rest of the GW WSR fleet and 5029 all running chimney first)

Anybody for a 5+ SVR Manor Gala? - with possible active participants 2014 on from:
7802
7812
7820
7822
7827
7828

Perhaps with 7819 on display on return from Swindon?

At a time when there are so many galas around the country, some more inspiring than others, it is perhaps appropriate to do something that would stand out. An all 'Manor' gala might just do that.

Alternatively, as a cheaper option with less visiting locos, how about a return to the 'GWR' galas that I remember from many years ago?

Personally, I wouldn't be in favour of a 'as many Manors as you can muster' gala, purely on the basis of the Standard 4 tank gala we had a few years ago. Variety is the spice of life after all!

As I mentioned in the 1501 topic, I was at the KWVR gala & here is a video of 7812, banked by 4160, leaving Keighley.

http://youtu.be/kucTdnTKw7M

There are a couple more videos of 7812 to come later - really good stuff!!!
