G5 Locomotive

Members and a few friends enjoyed a visit to the G5 Locomotive works in Shildon.

We were given an excellent talk form Bernard Morris who was supported by several colleagues. Bernard proved to be most informative and extremely passionate about the project.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the team is second to none and there is no question of if success will be achieved.

Most of the locomotive is spread around the workshop in parts which allowed us more insight into how steam power works.

There should be assembly of parts next year and we hope to visit again to see how progress is being made.

Most of us adjourned to The Spice Lounge, where we enjoyed a meal, which was of the usual excellent quality.
