Progress Tuesday 12th September 2017

Hi all

Today saw class 31 31206 haul our service train for the last time this season and there were a large number of enthusiasts who follow this class of loco travelling all day. The Pullman Buffet was also busy
The PWay team managed to tamp four panels of track in the Duffield area
A beautiful restored ejector arrived for steam engine Cathryn complete with original wooden operating lever. It is suited to left hand drive and will be so fitted with a connecting rod to the drivers side thus affecting dual control of the brakes. Topping this was the arrival of a vacuum gauge found abandoned at Doncaster works and believed to have come from A3 Green Arrow which also been restored
The DMU team completed the B exam on 55006 and the shunted the Maintenance Facility to swap the CK and PWay Bubble 

All for now

Mike
