News - 20 April 2015
A super weekend was had at the recent Barrow Hill 'Rarities' gala.
Highlight of the event for us was the donation to the Project of an original Baby Deltic handbrake wheel. Seen below is the donor Ian Day (left) handing the handbrake to Project member Ian Lewis. The handbrake wheel will be fitted to the recreated Baby Deltic during the rebuild and will remain there throughout the life of the loco. Many thanks to Ian and his wife Mavis for this kind and thoughtful donation.
A limited number of worksplates replicas cast in aluminium are available for sale. They are the same design as the ones to be carried by our recreated loco. These will be highly polished and painted, when finished they will be indistinguishable from those mounted on the loco. They are available at £85 each and can be pre-ordered here - see the sales page for details.
