    Schömas 5130 & 5129 was put on to some rails today, 5129 currently is a non runner so it was up to 5220 “The Thomas Buck to tow both locos on to the rails! I’ve had a fun day doing some driving that’s for sure!

    Absolutely splendid progress and looking very settled as an operational site. Really pleased to see all of the Schomas back together as a fleet, just some wagons and a peat bog for some extraction and back to the old days........ just dreaming.....

    Cheerz,

    Our site is on Crowle Moors which is a peat bog, its a SSSI site in fact, we've only got 1 peat tub wagon, and to my knowledge the only surviving one from the system! Would have been good if we could have got 5-10 of them for photo charters but ah well..

    Here is a short video from the day.


    Oh yes I got the wasps stripes finished on the front.. I'm quite impressed with myself!

    More track down.. Just needs screwing in and we can run locos on it.
    We are looking for a point leaver as well, if anyone knows of any going for a reasonable price!

    The Thomas Buck has been progressing very quickly recently now and isn’t far from being completed. Hopefully 2 of the Schömas will be outside running.

    We are having multiple open days in September
    Saturday 14th - Sunday 15th
    Saturday 21st - Sunday 22nd

    Thought I’d include this photo.. The naming ceremony of The Thomas Buck, the man himself is leaning on the front of the loco.
