In 2019 we secured a Contract with Cefn Mably Farm Park, near Cardiff South Wales to build a complete turn-key 12.25” gauge railway. The Contract includes design, manufacture and installation of Track and Design and manufacture of the train.
Work started in April 2019 and the track work was completed in August. The design work on the train which is an all new, battery-Electric Locomotive and three carriages, was approved for manufacture in September 2019.
Unfortunately two unforeseen events then intervened, firstly the park was flooded in February resulting in significant damage and temporary closure and then COVID and the lockdown struck – for us it meant closing the factory but even before that we were held up by critical components that were due in late January from Italy – they eventually arrived in June!
The factory re-started in June and we have been working hard to catch up.
Today the first painted carriage returned from the paint shop and we can now concentrate on completing the job.
Here is a selection of photos showing the state of work at lockdown:
