Progress Thursday 15th August 2019

Dear all,

Finally a reasonably sunny day (after it soaked us about 9 o'clock). The service today was the Class 119 and 101 coupled to it. It was a busier day than Tuesday with a noticeable number of grandparent/grandchild combinations.

Down the yard, the Mark 1 SO which had a vacuum cylinder changed the other day had everything connected up, tested and returned to the rake ready for tomorrow and the weekend. A good job done!

The Derby Lightweight trailer car which is up in the air was prepared for the correct bogies to be connected, this of course included shunting them out from the very end of Cemetary Lane.

Investigations into the issues experienced with 33103 at the weekend began but so far no joy.
