19th September 2014The loco was extracted from the shed at Minffordd and taken to Boston Lodge for display during Superpower 2014.
9th September 2014The diesel engine is now at Boston Lodge, having been moved there from Minffordd to get it close to workshop facilities.The good news is that after some patient work led by Rob Bishop the engine now runs, and runs well. Consequently morale among the volunteer team is high, and some of that enthusiasm has transferred to the Boston Lodge staff as well.
This year the WHR Superpower Weekend on 12-14th September is based at the Porthmadog end of the WHR and it is hoped to make the engine and loco an exhibit at Boston Lodge.
The first grant application has unfortunately been unsuccessful but submissions to other bodies are planned.
