    A place in chesterfield.
    the guy who use to be top man at Bowers started up by himself.
    Bowers never got back to me when I first asked about them so was given his number instead.

    Quick update.

    Early last week I was informed that both the eth and aux gens were finished and ready for payment and collection.

    If you can spare a few pennies this will be much appreciated.

    Sadly due to time restraints they won’t be fitted this year, we will get together soon to discuss a date for a lift in the new year.

    Photos on my Lion Facebook page or there’s one on the donation link.

    Yesterday Lion was moved out of its usual hiding spot to allow access for a working party to do some jobs on the Hampshire unit easily.

    This gave me the opportunity to fill the loco with air for a good 6 hours.
    Something I don’t get the chance to do that often.
    No strange pops bangs or hisses from blown pipes came from it and it held air for a while once disconnected.

    Plans are being made to collect the generators and to start putting the loco back together once the weather perks up a little.
    Peoples busy lives being the main delay.

    Donations link here for anyone who wants to help out. It’s all much appreciated whatever you can spare.
