Working in the lovely evening sunshine, the rolling stock from the sidings was collected together ready for the return train.
And then moved onto the main line while the shunting took place – just as well it’s a Tramway!!
The newly arrived rolling was moved into the required locations. It takes a bit of imagination, but, the van is where the goods shed will be one day and the opens are where a covered platform will be built. The coal wagons are where coal staithes and a loco servicing area will be. The quarry access to the through the tunnel seems to be where both slate and granite is being quarried.
Then the goods stock for the return journey was collected together.
And then the passenger coaches were moved to complete the train, ready for the trip back down the valley.
There may be other ways of moving stock around at the new station yard, and if so we’ll discover those in due course. At least we know the new track arrangement can be worked by a large engine when necessary, and so the track ballasting work can now be progressed to complete this part of the project.
