    Another great effort by the P Way gang, 6 panels of track replaced over the last few weeks. Also Moorbarrow’s tank is coming in with the build up of undercoat. In the background work on GWR 216 also continues.

    a happy new year to all on NatPres, keep watching as there will be a few interesting updates with much to look forward to in 2021.

    regards

    Over the last 2 days I have signed up to the gwili railway preservation society and the tvr 28 grand slam appeal, £40 a month for 25 months. The awesome work the railway has achieved at a time of a global pandemic has been a pleasure to follow! I look forward to tvr 28 steaming into a developed abergwili junction! Thanks for your great work everyone involved.

    Update

    the relay is now finished and this is the view ahead. Photo M Whittall

    In the shed GWR 216 is having it’s roof repainted and Moorbarrow’ s tank is continuing to receive filler and paint.

    work at Bronwydd had focussed on the new crane with oil leaks to find and general recommissioning.

    Keep watching as we have a couple of loco announcements coming up, there might be a few raised eyebrows shall we say....

    regards

    Matt

    Nice to see the progress continue, Is there a reason for the yellow rail chairs in the photo of the relay ?
