Progress Friday 16th August 2019

Dear all,

A miserable day with monsoon rains but it didn't deter the visitors with a very good day recorded on the till, coming for a ride behind 78018 in the dry. Even the sheep provided the visitors with some amusement too!

Down the yard, the guys continued looking in to the issues with 33103 with a view to trying to get it back in service for this weekend's Class 33 Running Weekend. Happily a problem with the engine governor was rectified and the locomotive released join classmate 33102 tomorrow.

The LMS BTO coach in the shed has had the lino laid today as well as the bodyside primed. This really will be an excellent coach when it is completed.
