Freight Arrival


2357 arrives in the goods loop with a pick-up freight train. The use of Dingham Autocouplers on the engine condemns it to running tender-first on turns to Wychminster although, if I turned it round, and also turned all the wagons fitted with these couplings as well, it could run the other way – it’s a matter of choice and I prefer to see it heading out of the station as nature intended rather than in to.

The area of the engine shed still needs work in softening off the edges around the buildings and the watermarks on the ground. However even with my long arms, it’s a stretch to work on and it’s being avoided.
