Wheeled Pony

Our work-in-progress Welsh Pony was on display on Bron Hebog at Dinas earlier this month.

It was left in a typical position for an out of service FR England engine - dumped at the end of siding.

Himself has not done a lot more to it since the last post about it on the blog, due to the motorising issues previously described, but it at least now it is sitting on its wheels.

As it happened the real Welsh Pony was in a similar situation during the Super Power weekend, shunted to the end of the short siding at Porthmadog Harbour station soliciting donations to the restoration fund.

Our Pony is one stage ahead of the real loco in that she does at least have a tender, although she did not bring it to Wales.
