GER 853 Update

5th October 2017

A major mile stone on the underframe of GER 853 was reached this week in six months we have gone from a rusty underframe with no wheels. To an underframe painted, wheeled and with the final the spring mounts being fitted this week, enabled it to be moved on its own wheels for the first time in 90 years. The underframe was then moved down the shed 10 feet to enable the continuous draw gear to be slid in from the Holt end then the underframe was pushed back to near the body. The continuous draw gear was completed by the addition of the centre cage with the rubbers and the draw hooks the assembly was then tensioned by the adjusting nuts. From the photos you can see the handbrake column in place with the bevel gear mechanism bolted on to the underframe. Still a long way to go before the body can be refitted but a very positive point in the restoration.

Members Day

2nd October 2017

Time Table for Saturday 7th October Members, due to this being the first time in the Societies history that all the steam locos, owned by it, are working together, at 16:55 there will be a 'cavalcade' of all Society owned steam engines leaving Sheringham, light engine to Weybourne.

As ever, there is the usual caveat, 'providing nothing happens beyond our control'.

Also, don't forget to bring your old five pound notes, which stopped being legal currency earlier this year and the old pound coins that stop being legal tender on the 15th October, we will happily take them as donations, there will be collecting buckets at various points around the railway.
