Steam & Tourist Railway News – April 2021

Die Informationen in der Datei sind gezielt für europäischer Eisenbahnfreunde zusammengestellt, da diese teilweise nicht oder nur schwer auf Inhalte von Websites in Nordamerika zugreifen können. Wir hier in den USA freuen uns darauf, dass – wenn die COVID-19-Reisebeschränkungen es zulassen – diese Freunde hoffentlich bald wieder in der Lage sein werden, sich uns bei einer oder mehreren dieser besonderen Veranstaltungen anzuschließen.

11. April, 2011: The WW&F 11 engineering team has devoted considerable time in the last month to the lead truck of No. 11, verifying plans and drawings in advance of making the necessary patterns to cast several key components. The wheels for the lead truck were cast several years ago and are already completed.

In early April, 2021, a substantial number of custom‐cut steel components were delivered to Sheepscot.

All are stored in the container until needed. They join a stash of stock steel parts received last month.
