Oxford Rail has also announced its intention to produce a "OO" rtr model of the CS standard 15 ton Mk1 and Mk2 cranes (as previously offered as a kit by D&S models).

I'd heard this was for sale. It's a shame considering the amount of work that has gone into it and that it has only recently been restored to working order. They've done a very good job on it too. Whatever happens, I hope that its future is secure. After its twin was scrapped in 2010 it would be a s...

How nice it is to see a 'heritage' crane still earning its keep!

Interesting, thanks. I was sure that there's a good reason, but it's an interesting comparison.

I can't answer your question, I'm afraid, but I find it extraordinary that it has taken longer to reopen the affected line after this derailment than it did to reopen all lines through Harrow & Wealdstone station in October 1952.

Progress?

A series of great videos, thanks for posting. The NYMR has invested a lot in its bridges over the last few years!

I have to say that the way the chains are being used in the video in the first link looks very dodgy to me, sharp edges and some very undesirable angles. Obviously did the job though.

I watched the first episode of the new programme"Train Truckers" that was broadcast on the"Yesterday" Freeview channel and I notice that in the opening sequence there's a very short shot of this crane being delivered by Allely's, so I think that its move will feature in a subsequ...

At least the crane looks in excellent condition, and even if the ropes have been cut it may be that they were due for replacement anyway. A set of ropes is not prohibitively expensive. It would be a daft to cut a good set on a serviceable crane without good reason. There are some interesting goodies...

Hello Will, welcome to the forum! it is very interesting to hear of your father and I am sure that any anecdotes or stories he can recall from his time at Waterside Works would be warmly welcomed on this forum. The plate you have, with the D.5990 order number and 1934 date, could have come from almo...
