Andrew Barclay 1952/1928, Dunaskin, 25th September 2016
The main reason for the visit was this: Andrew Barclay 1952 of 1928, an 0-4-0 fireless. It was the first time I have seen a working fireless, and the same clearly went for most of the visitors on 25th September. Understandably the volunteers at Dunaskin are very proud of this little locomotive.
I was almost taken by surprise on this first run. The fireless was behind No 10 which was in the platform. In very short order two volunteers got into the cab, released the brake, rang the bell and away it went. No fuss, no bother, hardly any noise. Splendid.
