Progress Tuesday 2nd August 2016

Hi all

Todays tea train had the most passengers ever including a large hen party as per Martins photo.
The Pway team replaced the last sleepers at Barnsley Lane which means since the programme to upgrade the track commenced they have replaced 580 sleepers. Well done !!
Barclay N0 3 was cleaned and Cathryn's rebuilding continued. The cooler weather allowed more paint to be applied to the LMS brake van.
A new apprentice joined the DMU group and they refurbished a vacuum cylinder ready to replace the failed one on 55006
Neway rail grinders held a further manual course on plain line and SET continued preparing the Blackpool tram for it's trials

All for now

Mike
