The Industrial Diesel & Railway Preservation Group is proud to announce its latest acquisition – Dogfish Ballast Hopper DB983604 (built Shildon 1960).
We have created a new project page which we will update as the project progresses.
With the slight relaxation of the lockdown, and a re-start of construction work, the wagon needed moving.
It is now safely at Rocks by Rails but it will need some repair and conservation work doing before it can be used on the railway. The years and some rough handling have not been kind but we think we can do all that is needed.
And of cause, we had to use 1382, our YE 0-6-0DE, to help with unloading.
A big thank you to everybody who has helps with the acquisition and transport.
