N J Halliday - Ye Newe Forge!


Successfully completed and brought into use in 1978 is the forge at the back of the Down Yard Restoration Building and this new facility is already proving its value to the Locomotive Department. Not only has it been used for smith's work, but also as a very useful aid when white metal has to be run out of bearings. This saves time and money and Frank Boait is full of praise for the spot of forgery he can indulge in.


Notes:
The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1979 and so does not reflect events in the 35+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
