Progress Saturday 19th November 2011

Dear all,

After a chilly start it was a glorious day in Wasserville with many groups going about their business. The passenger service ran as per the winter timetable and some more Santa bookings were taken. This was in between fixing a leak in the roof of the Platform 2 waiting shelter and applying paint to various things at Duffield.

Down towards the Engineerium, the LMSCA continued work to strip out the Third Open coach and the 8F group worked on tubing up the boiler for Henry Ellison. Work continued on the LMS Brake Van with parts of the roof sections receiving attention.

The DMU team split in two with half finally completing work on the centre car's heaters so that the visitors are warm for Santa, whilst the other half managed a first gloss on the ceiling in 51505.
