Meanwhile in Rhyd

Thanks to a local reporter (i.e. David the owner of Rhyd) news has reached me that the Clayton arrived safely in Rhyd after the long road journey from Sheffield.

By last Saturday she had been unloaded onto a flat wagon for the journey up the quarry tramway.

The battery was charged and she was given her inaugural run up in the mountains.

After running in she will be entering the paint shops - but she will be back in service long before Model Rail Scotland in February.


  1. Thanks for the photos, Mark! These are great. Good to see it in it's new home, and I look forward to the paint job eventually. Happy New Year!

  2. I was actually rather taken with the Bedford Forward Control Lorry model.
