Local Lad made good

Despite the dire weather predictions, it’s been a busy weekend at Apedale. We were honoured to host a visit by the owner of Lister 10805. The loco worked very locally to Apedale at Springfields Tileworks – predictably, now the site of a supermarket. The owner, on the other hand, had come from rather further afield – Norway to be specific. The loco is normally based at the West Lancashire Light Railway, and we are grateful to both the owner and the WLLR team for allowing a “local lad” to visit its old stamping ground for a few weeks.
Elsewhere, significant progress was made by the team of younger members on Motor Rail 21520 – a recent arrival. The wheels are a tiny bit on the tired side, so the loco has been turned over with a view to removal of the wheelsets.
