Bloody hell, management speak creeping into Sierra Oculta. I’ll have to have words with the culprit.
Anyways, in a rare show of logic the FCPyF’s middle management have been making themselves useful (for a change) by renumbering the railcar fleet sequentially. It’s highly unlikely that they will ever get round to doing the same for the steam and diesel locos because they were last seen patting each other on the back in La Posada Estrella. They’ll dine out on today’s “work” for the rest of the year.
As part of the renumbering exercise loco #23, a German-built diesel, is now #58. Numbers 24, 26 and 28 have not been used yet but 28 will be allocated to the new autoferro, similar to the one shown below, due to enter service next month.
The real reason for #9 not being renumbered yet is that the vinyls I have in stock are too large to fit a two digit number on the engine cowl or cab sides and the woodwork on the body is too uneven for the numbers to be applied.
