Wadebridge Loco News

Wadebridge is currently in service on the Mid Hants Railway and running with Canadian Pacific's tender. A deal has been done to swap it for Port Lines tender which is a smaller tender but in better condition. It is also planned to fit new exhaust steam pipes which will hopefully stop a steam leak from the old life expired ones.

New tender Build

With the tender wheels sets now finished we have been investigating the production of axleboxes for the tender and, after much thought, we have had a new pattern made by Preservation Patterns. It was largely successful with just few modifications to the test casting needed. The rest of the boxes be will cast up soon.
