Mystery ballaster unveiled


Latest output from the WRHA’s own ‘Skunk Works’ deep in the wilds of Northumberland is our new side discharge ballast hopper on its 1964 Ford Dexta operating platform.
The hopper awaits final livery but really should have an Engineers’ Fishkind code. Seeing as it’s much smaller by a considerable degree than the ‘fish’ used elsewhere on the island’s railway system, I suggest ‘Plankton’ would be appropriate…

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!

    I suggest ‘mintie’.
    Are the rear wheels perched (!) on the rails there, or running on the sleepers?

    Pondlife might work as a name.
