Traction & rolling stock

The weekend of 26/27th of march 2022 saw a small group of volunteers go down and get the railway ready for opening. Part of the work done was seeing club loco TIHANY having a yearly washout and preparation for boiler exam. In preparation for this we did an inhouse hydraulic test and light steam test in preparation for boiler exam. Scamp no.71 was also trial tested after winter maintenance and hauled some test trains to make sure the line is safe for passenger running as well as test out our new coach. This is a large toast rack coach which was originally built at the moors valley railway, recently purchased by the club late last season so was never used but it has now been made safe for passenger operation. The new couplings were fitted, and underneath of the coach was examined.
