Progress Tuesday 3rd October 17

Hi all

Our service train today was handled by IRIS our single lightweight railcar and considering the cooler weather and time of year we had good loadings
The PWay are now re sleepering between Shottle and Hazlewood
Cathryn was rolled out of the shed to check the valve gear and the problem was over long taper pins which were fouling the reversing mechanism. Both Barclays were fired for a pressure test and Henry Ellison was also being prepared for a visit to North York Moor railway were it will be keeping their Santa coaches warm
Work continues on the old weighbridge site to provide a base for the new station building

All for now

Mike
