‘QUADS’ IN THE WORKS
Gresley ‘Quad-Art’ set No. 74 are currently in the Carriage & Wagon workshops at Weybourne on the North Norfolk Railway for overhaul. The work includes new roof canvas (the vehicles having been withdrawn in 2016 owing to water ingress) and the replacement of all 40 brake blocks for the first time since BR days.
DONCASTER HONOURS GRESLEY
A public square in Doncaster is to be named after Sir Nigel Gresley following a vote by Doncaster Free Press readers. The square will form part of the £300 million Civic and Cultural Quarter development.
