Progress Saturday 4th September 2010

Evening all,

Another glorious September day saw the passenger service bobbling up and down all day and another delighted "Day with a Driver" guest. The Booking Hall, EVRA shop and buffet car were all open too. The narrow gauge was in operation and saw reasonable passenger numbers.

Down the yard, the morning firstly consisted of moving the water tanker from the incline so that the passenger service could begin, followed by shunting the shed to enable the exterior painting of 50599 to continue. After this, the small DMU team of two continued the internal restoration work of same by way of screwing up the ceiling panels in the guards area, along with some associated trim and light fittings. This can now be sanded and painted.

The LMSCA were also hard at work inside their Third Open.
