Townsend Hook work completed
The cosmetic restoration of our Fletcher Jennings locomotive, "Townsend Hook" was completed in time for the loco to accompany the other 4 surviving Fletcher Jennings locos in the UK to Tywyn, home of the Talyllyn Railway, for the finale their 150th anniversary event.
Three of our locos have received repaints this year; they're looking very smart.
