An area of Amersham has been reimagined, with a scaled steam engine replica taking the place of a worn-out grass verge.
A joint project between Amersham Town Council (ATC) and the 1st Chesham Bois Scout Group has seen a new display placed on Oakfield Corner, including a model of the Metropolitan 1 steam engine and an improved path.
On September 18, an ATC spokesperson said: “Two years ago, we embarked on an exciting project in partnership with the leaders of the 1st Chesham Bois Scout Group to create an innovative display for Oakfield Corner.
“With the help of the Nic Kennedy, who owns Amersham MOT in Plantation Road and the ever-dedicated scout group leaders, the train made its way to its new home this morning.
“We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the leaders of the 1st Chesham Bois Scout Group leaders, Nic at Amersham MOT for transporting the train, and Mr and Mrs Howland for storing the locomotive. What a community we have here in Amersham.”
At the time of writing, fencing remains on site for several more weeks as the project leaders have further groundworks to complete.
