Air Power

The Moseley Railway Trust has passed a milestone in the work to complete the Apedale Valley Light Railway. Yesterday, 23/1/10, we ran our first air-braked “passenger” train. Passengers in inverted commas, because the only people carried were Trust volunteers – or “test subjects” as they were more correctly termed. We have to carry out an extensive programme of testing in order to confirm that both the railway, and the vehicle used on it, are as safe as possible when we finally allow non-test-subjects to board our train. The other advantage to allowing non-test-subjects onto the train is that, hopefully, they will pay for the privilege and thereby instantly transform the Trust’s finances. If you fancy helping us to transform the finances, get in touch here.
