Juniors at Work


NELPG Junior Volunteers go through a programme of Workshop Practice training over a period of 2 years. These sessions are lead by apprentice served mechanical engineering fitters from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for which the NELPG is ever grateful. The syllabus covers filing, hack sawing, work layout/measurement using rulers/micrometers and the use of the pedestal drill. Tutoring them progresses on a 1 to 1 basis on the use of lathes. Safety is given the highest priority.!

The photos show various Juniors at work during a ½ day training and Working Party session.
