Hemsworth Town Council approached us regarding maintenance and locomotive upgrades.

‘Sam’ one of the railways locomotives was dismantled, while ‘Mr Sunshine’ was suffering from operational problems. We completed a rebuild on ‘Sam’, stripping and reassembling the locomotive and rebuilding the power bogie. The redesign proved successful and ‘Mr Sunshine’ had the same work completed. We have also provided new wheelsets to the articulated carriage set.

Whilst there were operational problems, we were able to hire to the council one of our locomotives ‘Dylan’ to ensure the line was running for the important August Bank Holiday weekend.

We also completed trackwork upgrades, including the refurbishment of two points and simplifying operations by removal of an unused shed line.
