Testing, Testing

Himself has been carrying out last minute checks on Bron Hebog before we submit ourselves to the paying public tomorrow at the Sparsholt show.

The layout was taken to the CHMRC's secret clubroom bunker to be erected as a whole (or as whole as it currently is) for test running.

This shot below nicely illustrates the size of the layout. What you see here is full length but only a third of the eventual depth!

It turns out to be a good thing that Himself decided to do some test running because he has discovered a few snags. A point motor switch required repairs. One of NGG16 number 87's power bogie motors was squealing and needed a drop of lubrication.

And the outboard disc brakes on the KMX Tamper were fouling one of the foot crossings at the Porthmadog end of the station - the foot crossing was altered rather than the Tamper!

So, that's us just about ready to head to Winchester. Will we see you there?
