Today at Statfold we welcomed Andy Rutter & John Startin who had helped restore the K1 when it was on the Welsh Highland Railway. They inspected the work that we have been undertaking on the K1. They brought us along some items for the K1, amongst them are the two beautiful replica lamps. Also, amongst the items was a small piece of history…the key to the locker in the cab of the K1, the key is stamped on both sides with K on one side and 2 the other.
The first picture shows Andy Rutter, John Startin and our Chairman Graham Lee with one of the replica lamps resting on front of the K1. The second picture shows the original cab locker key.
Don’t forgot that our first Enthusiast Day is on the 21st March, more details and tickets can be found here. It will be one of the first opportunities to see the K1 since its arrival here at Statfold.
