Progress Wednesday 5th November 2014 - Bonfire Night

Dear all
 
The great track reconfiguration proceeded apace with a one day hire of a mini digger and driver to prepare the track bed and ensure the drainage in the area was corrected at the same time. A big thank you for the large team that turned out to support Phil as by the end of the day they had achieved the ballast base ready for next week's endeavours. The photos show the scene partway through the day and two of the team looking down a hole. Vince Morris did achieve a great deal of drain rodding though!
 
The dmu team finality bottomed the replacement head on one of the "Bubble Car" engines and now are concentrating on an oil change to restore the vehicle back to active service. The LCC had Christmas on her mind and further preparation and tweaking was agreed. The LMSCA tended to the last of the guttering on their Third Open and continued to progress the BSK.
 
I mentioned John Rhead's attention to the guards documentation and should also thank Michael Perkins who is knocking all the literature into shape.
 
The Booking Hall processed more Santa bookings and spend a great deal of time preparing the web site to reflect our wares in 2015.
 
A cold, sunny day with much further progress.
 
Martin
