I attended one day of the Fedecrail Congress, in Conwy, to hear Shaun McMahon present his paper: "THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF 'PORTA TREATMENT' - AN ADVANCED INTERNAL BOILER WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM - ON STEAM LOCOMOTIVES OF THE FERROCARRIL AUSTRAL FUEGUINO, REP. ARGENTINA."

In the event it was presented on his behalf by Chris Parrott. Chris is a seasonal driver on Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino (FCAF). Shaun was unable to attend following an injury sustained earlier in the year whilst at work on the railway. Chris was assisted during the presentation by Nigel Day.
