Chevallier is currently back at whipsnade, and is running well. A good sight to see.
I don't suppose anyone has any pic's of her at the Zoo per chance?
a photo of Chevallier takin in one of the paddocks in the evening on monday.
Any idea how long he will be staying?
Been told hopefully the rest of the summer
Thanks ever so much for that, she is looking mighty fine indeed. Lovely machine in my opinion.
I wonder if the move will become permanent, thought I expect that she is very powerfull compared to the other loco's in the fleet.
Of course, he (or she?) has been there before ..... attached was taken in 1983. Note the differences.
regauge the Corris or the Tallylin to 2'6"!:behindsofa:would be better!
Mmmm..... I know the new Glyn Valley Tramway has been mooted as a 2' 6" line (given that the original was 2' 4" plus or minus a bit) but I wonder why they didn't consider 2' 3" - it would have allowed the preserved Glyn Valley stock from the TR to visit......
It is difficult enough to source equipment for 2ft.6ins let alone the infinitely more obscure 2ft.3ins or 2ft4.5ins.
I'd say more the opposite, it's really easy to obtain 2ft 6in equipment, most railways are busy regauging it to 2ft!
A case of exaggeration I suspect
There's an element of reality in this - the last big MoD systems to close at Trecwm, Dean Hill and the one in Scotland were all 2ft 6" gauge, I think and these provided a great deal of rolling stock such as box vans.
Nice to see her out and about, next stop S&KLR perhaps?
Doubt she will go there due to her weight. She is however running well at Whipsnade.
