Can you help us with the overhaul of the much-loved, last ever remaining D49 'Morayshire'? ^JS

Progress with Morayshire’s overhaul. The driving axle, both bogie wheel sets and the tender wheel sets at South Devon to have the journals skimmed and polished. The driving crank pins also are needing attention on the quartering machine. The trailing drivers are in good condition. Can you help with the appeal?

09/05/2021

One step closer to our re-opening announcement - yesterday was the first of our trial days using SRPS Members in preparation for full re-opening to the general public - it might have been cold, wet and felt like the middle of winter, but our trials went well.
We have another day of trials with SRPS Members today, we can then assess the performance prior to an official re-opening in the not too distant future.

Thank you all for your patience, when we re-open we want to do it with all our safety in mind.

Recently, Rail Systems Alliance Scotland, an alliance of @networkrail , Babcock and Arcadis, who deliver track renewals and enhancement projects throughout Scotland, helped our Permanent Way #volunteers with a digital track geometry survey. This has assisted our plans for reopening B&KR to passengers, following the extended closure of the Railway due to #COVID19. The railway remains closed to visitors at this time.

The survey helped our volunteers to better understand the condition of the railway track and target maintenance efforts.

We are very thankful to Paul Houston, Alastair Connell and the Alliance's S&C team for arranging and carrying out the survey.
