Progress Easter Saturday 3rd April 2010

Evening all,

A much better day weather and passenger-wise. Whilst we still await final confirmation, it seems we could have at least doubled yesterdays visitor numbers. The buffet car was noted as extremely busy at times with the specialities of chilli or lasagne going down very well. The narrow gauge and model railway were open as well as Mary's mysterious tent which always proves popular.

Today was the first time we have ran one of the new Drive a Diesel offerings. This one involves four separate guests all taking turns to drive. After the initial learning curve, it ran successfully and everybody was happy.

In the engineerium, the "new" Class 108 had more work carried out on reconstructing the cab including the replacement of Formica, sanding and varnishing window frames, and refurbishing the doors.

A brilliant day. Many thanks to all,

Mike Evans via Leigh
