Hornguides

Meanwhile at Llangollen, the cab is being erected onto the rear of the locomotive, with the detailing of the running plate curvature now apparent. The hornguides are being fitted and the front four are nearly fixed. The Extension Frames are now on order and below is a photo of the two profiles as delivered to our supplier, Stones of Street. They will shortly be machined to our drawings and are expected at Llangollen in March.

AGM and Members Day

The 6th Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday 10th October at 11 am in the Henry Robertson Suite at Llangollen station.

We would like to encourage as many members as possible to attend this year. We will be explaining our plans for the next year which should see significant progress being made with the construction of 6880 Betton Grange. There will be opportunities both before, and after the meeting, for all members to visit the locomotive works to view the work in progress.

We have arranged for the Great Western Engineers Saloon to be attached to the Llangollen Railway service trains on the day exclusively for our use. Members are invited to join us on either the 13:00 or 15:00 departure from Llangollen.

Our sales stand will be open with our full range of merchandise.
