Quite a good day with final preparations for Santa taking place around the station and on the train. Clerk Chuck was doing some admin work to do with the closed season till upgrades which was most useful.
Down the yard, work to find out why 55006 had suddenly stopped created vacuum from No.2 engine was successful. It turned out not to be the exhauster in the end but more dirt in the system preventing it from working efficiently.
Speaking of exhausters, a new one was fitted today to 50170 following on from yesterday.
Thanks to Jack for assisting with the surprise departure of the test vehicle at the last minute too.
