Discussion in 'Narrow Gauge Railways' started by 48DL, Feb 16, 2015.
Much more fun to turn up on the day and enjoy the railway and any new treats that are on offer.
In an ideal world yes, sadly I cannot make this one for various reasons (as much as I would like to) and therefore won't be coming until September.
Sorry you cant make it.
If you remind me, after the 28th, I`ll let you have photos of all the "new" stuff !
Thank you Henry, much appreciated. I hope all goes well - I'm sure people will be treated to an impressive show as usual!
Another great show put on by the Statfold team. Thanks to all involved.
Can only agree with this, another great day at Statfold. Lots of work gone into the developments round the station, the new footbridge deserves a mention as is superbly engineered. On the loco front the Davenport is an absolute gem, and it was nice to finally see the two Pakis Baru locos in action having not seen them running on my previous visits
Footage is starting to appear on Youtube. Goodness me but that Davenport is a credit to all concerned. The replica Galloping Goose is very impressive too.
I missed the Davenport in India and never expected to ride in a brake van behind it! Double headed by an ex mainline Sragi Mill loco........
Thank you so much for a remarkable event(again!)
My video from Saturday is online. Another good visit to the line with many changes since my last visit 12 months ago.
Great videos people, is there any more information on the Hudswell 'P' (?) class that I have seen pictures of in the works?
Managed to make a very short visit on Saturday afternoon. What's the story on the Tin Goose?
Hi yes HC1172 of 1924. 8 1/2 x 12 inch cylinders, 24inch coupled wheels, 200 Gal tanks, 26 cu ft bunker, 144 PSI working pressure, approx. 12 ton operational, supplied in Hudsons Usual Middle Green !
Dispatched by HC 14/5/24. Originally ordered in 1915 for a customer in Rhodesia, order cancelled and not sold until 1924. via Hudson India. Left Birkenhead on SS Malakhand to Calcutta
From the Ryam Sugar Works, Bihar, India came back to the UK with the Davenport.
1 of only 6 of the P Class built (below 30 inch gauge) There were another 5 made of larger gauge officially classified as Q Class
Hope this helps
Thank you ever so much, it's a class I wasn't aware of before and I look forward to seeing it in steam!
I noticed that Orenstein & Koppel 0-4-0 Works No 5662 wasn't in the Grain Store, or anywhere else as far as I could see, this year. Anyone know what is happening with it. Always had an appeal to me since I first saw it, a lovely little loco
Its been sold and now somewhere in Derbyshire.
There were some pics of its tender on here a while ago, I think.
Thanks for the info 61624 & 48DL, much appreciated. I'd love to see it in steam one day.
The new stuff all looks grand from what I've seen on the net! I look forward to seeing the new Hudswell, possibly by September at the rate you've all been cracking on with things recently!
My question is, is there a place where I could find some GA drawings of the Davenport or the new Hudswell for modelling purposes? In a book or anything?
