I had a bit of a fiddle with the GEM Dennis cross breed chassis and it jerked along for a while before ripping one of the cylinders off. Back to the drawing board. I won't be beaten... probably.
I had a trip round Llechwedd slate caverns today which was OK. My daughter loves it and we can't go often enough as far as she is concerned. I had the chance to check out the slate wagons 'preserved' on the site. Mostly they are not very remarkable but they do have the rotting remains of the only existing LNWR 2ft gauge coal wagon. There is also a short wheel base gunpowder wagon which must have been fiddled with at some point as it has a GWR slate wagon chassis.
