News about Baxter

11 December 1998

[Inside th a steam chest] Baxter suffered a minor mechanical problem in the Autumn at the end of a days's work on the Vintage goods train. The driver reported it making a "chinking" sound from the front end, and a change in its exhaust beat. Investigation revealed that one of the valves had become loose on the spindle as a result of the locking bolt having fallen out of the front lock-nut.
Here is a video clip of Baxter working the Vintage Goods train in September 1997. The file is a 6MB Mpeg.
