Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Hopefully next week should see the resumption of work on our new Garratt 143.
Himself was taken out of service a few weeks before Christmas for a motion overhaul - having his clock side connecting rod replaced - and the fitter insisted on a six week spell of running in before he could be put back into traffic.
Now he feels ready to sit at the workbench again and finish off the construction work on the kit.
You'll remember that the mechanical work on the bogies had been completed, but they hadn't had their pick ups fitted yet, so that'll be one of the first jobs so it can be put through its paces properly.
So long as he doesn't drop any bits on the floor while he's doing this we'll be fine.....
