The National Traction Engine Trust

At the forum held in the Trust marquee at Dorset a good number of interested members attended to receive an update on progress to date,  questions were asked on the following;

 

 The current numbers that have undertaken the Competency Schemes.

 

 Progress on the review.

 

Progress on the work with the members of intended Association of Independent Boiler

Inspectors.

 

 A topic that received considerable debate was the issuing of boiler discs linked to the computer print out provided to Rally Organizers.

 

 The fact that an engine under repair was unexpectedly sited outside of our marquee was the subject of further discussion There were some critical and some constructive comments. However, the application of graffiti to the engine that occurred during the early hours of the following morning was completely unacceptable to both the Trust and the GDSF management.
