The group’s Autumn Journal is now out and, with the easing of restrictions on working parties, can happily once again report on the progress of various Heritage related projects taking place around the railway. The Kerr Stuart 4415 team have turned their attention to the fuel pump and governor assembly, although that’s a far from simple task; the Wooden Waggon Federation’s rebuild of Coal Waggon 163 is starting to take shape; while the Waggon Tracks team have had a number of productive weekends working on our unique fleet of vehicles.
In a probable first, the Journal also reprints an article from The Selangor Journal. Dating to April 1897 it lets you step back in time and gives an insight into the work of Charles Edwin Spooner – one of Charles Easton Spooner’s sons – who spent much of his career in Malaya.
Finally, if you’d like some Winter reading, make sure you check out the Editorial on page 3 to see how going digital in future will not only help reduce the Group’s costs, but also mean you get access to over 60 back issues of the Journal!
