HENGIST sales stall out and about.
  Just a reminder we will have our sales stall at the Autumn Gala at the GC Railway on the platforms at Loughborough from tomorrow Thursday the 4th of October until Sunday the 7th of October.

We will have a large batch of new model railway items on sale as well as our usual array of branded items and other goodies.

If you are travelling to the Gala on any of the four days come along and say Hi and get the latest news on the project.
Sales stall at the Great Central Railway Autumn Steam Gala, Loughborough.
  Our sales team visited the Autumn Gala at the GC Railway on the platforms at Loughborough station over the four day event, October the 4th to the 8th.

We had a very successful event and met many people over the four days who were keen to learn more about HENGIST and the recent progress.

All the hard working members of the sales team would like to extend our appreciation to the very friendly staff at the Great Central Railway for making us so welcome as always.

Container Move
  On Tuesday 9 October, CTL Seal needed to reorganise their container area so a crane was hired for the move. Our container has been moved through 180 degrees so we now have an opportunity to paint the other side that was close to an adjacent container. The smokebox and cab were also moved. The job was completed quickly and efficiently!

Container Painting Complete
  We managed to take advantage of a warm autumn's day by completing the painting of the container. Here Ashley Shimwell applies the final touches. Previously we couldn't get to this side as it was adjacent to another container. Now the container has been turned through 180 degrees, we could get it finished before winter. We've also got some solar powered LED lights in the container which were wired up today
