The RSR has been invited to join Telford Steam Railway for one of their ‘steam days’. On this day the Telford Steam Railway will be firing up their collection of steam and diesel locomotives as well as having displays of other items. The trains will be running trips up and down the line and the locomotive shed will be open.
There are also model railways to see and a tea shop. If you would like to come along and join us there is no charge but places at the station are limited. To reserve your place please fill in the entry form and you will receive an email confirming your place and also an entry card for your car. We are hoping to have a list of entrants available on the day to help visitors recognise the cars.

The address of the railway is

Are there ranges on the dwell meter for 4,6 and 8 cylinders? if so switch to 4 cylinders and re test. May be obvious but what do the instructions say?It could be that your meter is specific to an 8 cylinder vehicle.Mike
Something I have encountered from time to time is that if the contact set is of recent manufacture, it can be that the fibre heel that is moved by the distributor cam can be fractionally too long. This prevents the points from shutting completely yet they can be set with the correct open gap, but […]
