Progress Sunday 6th September 2009

Dear all,
Despite not having a sunny day there have been quite a few people coming through the booking hall, EVRA shop and buffet car. The conscripts of the day have been continuing to spruce up the dogfish wagons as well as the container on the dock. The Narrow Gauge railway bobbled along all day and had a few passengers.
Today's "Day with the Driver" went very well and the whole family enjoyed the occasion.
The DMU team were busy working away down the yard changing a fuel pump on one of 51188's engines so now the Met-Camm set is back to three engines again after 51505 had a water pump changed on one of its engines on Friday. Initial investigations also began on the 2nd engine on 51505 that hasn't been in use since October 2007 due to an oil leak.
At the back of the shed, the "Dream Steam Team" continued their work on the steam locomotive.
The Class 31 received some attention.
Thanks to all,
John Ball via Leigh
