Another gloriously sunny day with many small tasks achieved in the run up to the opening, with a team even finding time to entertain BuyAGift guests who thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The DMU team rectified a fault with the cab start buttons in the 108 and primed their new step boards, cut and shaped by the LMSCA. A thank you to them in this busy period. They too were found staining various parts of the coach. It looks a treat. On the subject of coaches, a small group worked on grinding out rusty patches of the BSK.
A visit to Wirksworth was made by Team Rodders who reported that he had watered, upon instruction, the Instant Lawn at Duffield and then covered it in tin foil.
It doesn't look like much but it is very hard to write about the multitude of jobs being done to ready everything for the grand opening.
