Winter Work Underway

If you’re easily upset look away now! Last night Harry Cotgreave took the gas axe to Sentinel S6 steam waggon 8928, calm down it wasn’t a recreation of a 1950’s scrap yard giving a steam engine the big chop up, but in aid of removing some stubborn bolts and fixings on a water tank. Helped by club members Andy Midwinter and Nick Westbrooke the mission was achieved and some pictures captured the sparky action.






Have you got any pictures from the workshop you’d like to share on the club website then get in touch
