Wadebridge Locomotive

The West Somerset Railway have now completed riveting together the various parts to form the tender frame.  Thanks to Gareth Winter and his engineering team. It is planned to move this tender frame to The Mid Hants Railway at the earliest opportunity. The tender tank is complete and is also at the MHR along with many other parts for the tender.
In the very near future there will be a meeting with the technical engineers of the MHR and Directors of the Wadebridge Company to decide on the way ahead concerning wheelsets and axleboxes and to plan a construction schedule.
The pricee of the wheelsets and axleboxes will be considerable and any readers who wish to become financially involved in helping with these costs are asked to get in touch with the Company Secretary at 22 The Knoll, Plympton, Plymouth PL7 4SJ.
