A hot and sunny day preparing things for tomorrow.
Firstly an examination of Derby Road 2 bridge, following remarks that
it had been 'bashed'. This is old damage, the bridge has been like that
for many years, and it has been checked by the Structures Examiner
whose report we get. No action is required at this time.
A little light weedkilling was undertaken in part of the yard, as was
some painting of the blue 0-6-0T.It is a cosmetic job for the time
being. More rotten woodwork was exposed on the Shark Brake van.
Tomorrow sees the Landrover and VCT out first working south of
Idridgehay with a works train out to Ken Rowlands crossing soon after.
