Q6 developments

The Q6 languishes on the NYMR wheeldrop at Grosmont waiting for its driving wheelset to be fitted. Unfortunately this can't be done until the failed hornstay is replaced. It has now been decided to manufacture a new one.


Joem to go South:Q6 to go West

The J72 will visit the Epping and Ongar Railway for six weeks this spring, and later the Q6 will be making a two week visit to the Wensleydale Railway.


Monthly Social Meetings

These take place at 19:30, usually on the second Friday of the month between September and May. Meetings now take place in Darlington Club and Institute in Northgate; see the What's on menu item for details.
