Progress Friday 9th August 2019

Dear all,

Not a bad day after the heavy rain cleared this morning until near the end of the day where a torrential downpour with thunderstorm decided to wet everyone! Issues raising steam this morning delayed the start for 78018 so elctro-diesel 73210 did the first train, which in turn enabled a power fault with the latter to be discovered ahead of the gala tomorrow. This was fortunately able to be rectified later in the day. A few last minute jobs were done in visitor 33102 "Sophie" so she is all good to go for the weekend too. The Class 08 "G.R.Walker" was cleaned ready for service on Sunday and some final positioning was also done.
