Shareholders and Supporters News
We are pleased to announce that the Annual Supporters’ Day will once again be held on Saturday, 3rd August 2019. The format of the Day, whilst being similar to previous years, will coincide with the North Norfolk Railway’s Somerset & Dorset Weekend; so plenty to see with visiting locomotives in operation. A schedule of the day will follow in due course but in the meantime if you have any suggestions on how you might like the day to run do get in touch. So if you’re eligible to take part please put it in your diary and inform the Company Secretary (admin@Standard4.com) of your intention to attend in good time along with any of your suggestions . The Board of Directors look forward to meeting up with you again in August.
Winter maintenance on 76084 is now complete. As is quite usual with steam locomotives when you plan an activity such as running-in the locomotive after having had the motion off and the wheels from under her something comes along to prevent it happening. In this case it was a coil spring on the pony truck which was found to be cracked and unserviceable. Fortunately, we had a spare in stock and thanks to those wonderful people in Weybourne Running Shed it has now been replaced and 76084 is ready to have a Fitness to Run (FTR in the trade) examination so she can be taken out ‘on the road’ for that all-important running in.
