The blog may be quiet but...

While most of us have been partying and in general relaxing, some real, visible progress has been made on the garratt, infact it is really starting to look the part.

With the help of Goodwin Alco, boiler cladding has been manufactured and fitted over the break and really looks a treat... have a look at the pictures and you can see that we really are not that far from getting this thing done!

You will notice that the stoker trough has received a lot of attention and when the new plate work arrives from a local engineering company, it too will go back together pretty quickly.

It is also worth noting that the workdays have changed back to the first and third Saturdays of the month...Come along, get involved and help get this machine back on the rails... Not too far to go now
