Tuesday 5th May

Evenin' all,

The Dream Steam Team continued with the rebuild of N0. 3 in the shed,
the Axle box lubricators were added, the Connecting rods and Coupling
rods were made ready to be lifted on, and the brake hangers were
fitted, there was also more painting. Having seen the progress, it is
starting to look a little more like a steam engine.

The electrical team fed a new cable across to the Training Room area
ready for a temporary visitor, a water pipe was also treaded through.

The Per Way team headed for Shottle where some preliminery work was
undertaken ready to start panelling out for the relay, Many spikes and
fishplate bolts were removed. They also collected the remaining logs
from the station site. The Dumper and Komatsu were replenished ready
for their work. The Flail head has now been handed to the Hydraulic
fitter who is refurbishing some of the pipes.

A prospective new customer was given a whole line tour and had the
full sales pitch.

The VCT repaired a gate post and rehung a gate near to Jebbs Lane,
before progressing to Shottle.

The shed bound 03 has some paint applied to it, whilst more work was
carried out on 'Tommy' Some light shunting also occured to act bas a
training excercise for Hydra and LJ Breeze.

The Booking Hall dealt with a few visitors. Whilst Geoff had a bit of
a tidy up at the north end of the yard.

Tomorrow sees work at Shottle, as well as the transportation of
materials.
