Readers here will know I ‘play’ for a day each week at a worklshop where we restore steam locos. One of our team publishes a newsletter each week, but as we are all on lockdown, he is scratting around for material to put on the newsletter….here is this week’s edition… enjoy it…if you can!!!

First, thanks for visiting my website. I would be very grateful if you would let me know when, and maybe how often, you look at it, or indeed, if you have any comments.

A Bondic Welder! Using a liquid glue which is hardened by the UV light. Apparantly it will bond just about everything! Here, it welded the elephant’s ear back on. Last week, it helped mend an allen key that locks our windows.. Reight good!
Sometimes, and it is scary, walking along the old Unstone Line, which was very busy in its day, moving coal and coke around….as you walk along, you sometimes hear what sounds like a train going by…Scary, or what?
A footpath turns right, and takes you under the viaduct to the side of the Mighty River Drone
and then back home.
Just had the Mog’s annual MOT, and to my horror, realised it had done only 2600 miles since the last one! Fair enough, it was off the road for a few weeks while I was having the back axle rebuilt, the other excuse being the volume of rain we have had since about August. I don’t mind using the Mog in the rain, but don’t like putting a soaking wet Mog back in the garage… This morning, I have replaced an exhaust bracket, and gobboed another joint, then took it for a nice drive around the local villages.
