Progress Sunday 11th January 2009

Good evening,

A much welcomed break today from the freezing temperatures of late, with progress on many fronts. The warmer weather bringing a few visitors through the Booking Hall.

Behind the shed the Dream Steam Team were in action whilst at the front of it there was activity on two fronts. A small team continued with the Class 119 major restoration project whilst the Class 20 Locomotive Society helped their locomotive make wind for the first time in a few months.

A bit closer to the station, a team of two conscripts and minders painted the Mermaid wagon and it actually looks quite good (although I am told it is only undercoat).

At Duffield, Carline Drains and Co went to investigate more drains.
