An interesting afternoon on the H&MGR today with a visit from Richard Donovan from the UK.  Richard brought with him his scratch built Giants Causeway Tramway Wilkinson tram engine (15mm scale).  First time a meths fired loco has run on the H&MGR and I think the first Irish prototype.

It's single cycling slip eccentric vertical boiler job, ran like clock work especially considering it had only run a couple of times until today.

It manually operated and runs a 2:1 gearing which, as Richard learnt the road, proved quite manageable on our grades.

It handled a borrowed train of Binnie Skips no problem at all.  (JRinTawa)

It was a good excuse too to set out things around the railway, like stuff up at the log loading area for example :-)
