Le Lit d'Ashmanhaugh

As promised, photos of the embryo hydraulic loco lift/stand taken on Wednesday in a raised position, whilst we were assessing the method of modifying said bed into a mobile loading/unloading/repair/maintenance stand. The rusty box section (suitably cleaned and painted of course!), will be attached as shown with an angle iron 'stop' at the right hand end, and a pair of box section 'rails' will be fabricated to fit into the left hand end, detachable & hingeable to rest on the track for loading/unloading. We may fit a winch to assist in getting locos on and off the stand be used when the 'driver' doesn't fancy driving the loco onto it !.......

.....and just couldn't resist including these photos of another lovely Ashmanhaugh Autumn !
