Cascaded into Departmental use...

Further to last weeks update, the double-deck education classroom 'Portacabin' has now been completely removed from its previous site (it was to the left of the green shipping containers in this photo). It is being re-erected in a new location for use as staff offices, and I am very pleased to say it is now safely out of public view. The site is already looking much better for it.

The large 'Kriegslok' loco in the background is due to leave the site in a couple of days, the yard will see a major shunt to release it and the opportunity will be taken to rearrange many of the static vehicles at Wansford. Swedish Class 'B' 4-6-0 No.101 will become the new 'gate guardian', cosmetic refurbishment of the loco for this role is ongoing as and when the IRPS volunteers have time.
