Our resident steam locomotive Romulus returned to service.
A new point has been fitted leading into our main container, this now allows a 3 lane storage area and easier access to the middle track.
Class 86 "Brook" and Steam Locomotive "Erin" new locomotives for 2015.
2014 saw the completion of our new signaling system, the signals are now in full operation.
For 2013 there is a new loop that climbs away behind our storage facility up a 1 in 50 incline and then through some trees before descending again around an earth bank and into the station area. (See Plan above) there are also some adjustments to the smaller train store access. This allows for larger steam locos to operate on approx 50' radius curves, our existing loop is nearer 35' radius. Some further adjustments to the track layout to access this new loop are being made for the 2014 season, this will allow most trains to use this new loop except in wet or icy weather conditions.
Petrol Hydraulic "Badger" arrived in time for the 2013 season.
