2017-06 UK 9. Dinas
UK 2017 album No 9 of 9: Dinas.
A more or less random collection lying about Dinas station yard
At the entrance of the station sits one of the surviving DeWinton vertical boiler locomotive. De Winton was a local Welsh builder (Caernarfon)
Ag the Stephenson valve gear has completely disappeared.
I strolled further down the yard towards the maintenance shed. A NGG16 running axle bogie.
The maintenance shed was a busy place. As I had passed a sign prohibiting to go any further I would test their patience with me and left. In the middle an NGG16 boiler cradle.
Two running axle bogie frames
Some South African goods wagons in the railyard
NGG16 driving axles, my guess. With new tires.
More NGG16 parts, don't know if its for scrap or for reuse. In front a fornt (water) tank and behind it a rear water tank annex coal bunker. Left a disused boiler on a boiler cradle
NGG16 boiler and boiler cradle
To my unexperienced eyes the boiler doesn't look in too bad a condition.
Three driving wheel sets, one the left one being the driving axle
Chimney, or more accurte: the exhaust pipe
Left a more or less complete bogieand middle a stripped bogie frame of an NGG16
The complete bogie, though without piston
While I was at at a fully working set of spare parts passed by collectively known under number 143.
The pivot pan
Aomehow I have the feeling that this is not an NGG16 boiler, too long and sleek for a Garratt. Maybe for a NG15?

This is how it can look after all the hard work
