Mixed Train

photo (13)s

843 heads up a mixed train on the main platform while Shunter George awaits some action in the goods yard. The nearest wagon is fitted with a Dingham Autocoupler, still in need of a brush over with blacking fluid –  a simple enough job that invariably gets forgotten.

My next project is to motorise the three-way splitting signal at the station entrance, the inner homes. After that the electrics are more-or-less complete but only more-or-less reliable. Mysterious bouts of shorting in the lever frame are still unresolved.
