Another bitterly cold day which saw fairly light loadings in comparison to yesterday, which is unusual. Nevertheless, the Day with a Driver guest thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Today the deep cleaning of Iris continued, including a thorough wipe down of the heater ducting and Formica, a hoover out, a further mop out and the cleaning of the bogies on one side.
Elsewhere, work continued on the newly arrived brake van, odd droppings of coal were collected up and the maintenance pit got cleared out with a brush and spade.
At the close of play the Rudd was delivered to the dock.
