Progress Sunday 23rd December 2018

Dear all,

A sterling effort by all concerned today in damp dull conditions, as we embraced our busiest ever Santa day. It was a new method of working today which enabled us to carry more people and it seems the method worked quite well! Well oiled machine springs to mind. One more day left tomorrow with fully booked trains and then it is on to trains near to New Year. Thanks also to David F for stepping in as Third Man at very short notice.

Down the yard, the team continued to battle with the vacuum cylinder fault and Ben began experimenting with a method of recreating the original-style tachometers in the Derby Lightweight. The standard tachometer to measure engine speed is a dial but in the Derby Lightweight these were a slider.
