Stock Movement

On Saturday 13th February 2010, Barclay 0-4-0ST Number 10 was steamed, and the diesel locomotive which had remained at Minnivey since our initial move was successfully started.

Four trips were made on the Scottish Coal line, the first using the diesel, and the other three with Number 10. At the end of the day, the only items of standard gauge stock left at Minnivey were the large steam crane (which was too wide to go through the gates at Chalmerston), 0-4-0DM : AB 366/1943 and the remains of R & H 0-4-0 DM 421697/1959. The latter two could not be moved because of missing sleepers in part of the siding where they were stored.

There still remained the old Killoch narrow gauge diesel and manriders, some tipper waggons, plus rails, turnouts etc.
