Despite missing the last round trip, Andrew Knights was able to film the trains' return.
An experiment to test extra usage for our Loco No2... ease of driver access and need for a third loco. It worked!
First the front of No2 was removed and left in the engine shed. Next the sprung coupler was dug out of hiding. Then the converter wagon was coupled up, followed by the old tin truck on a rigid bar coupler …
This was to test two things….does the KLR NEED a third loco? Can driver access to No2 be made easier for occasional trips/drivers? The train was prepared and then…
The answer is…no. There’s no need for loco No3, and a resounding YES…
Next year the tin truck will be rebuilt Into something more useful
