Saturday 7th April 2012

A rather grey and cold start to the day did not deter our visitors with good passenger numbers throughout the day. Rod and Mary's Easter egg hunt proved very popular with our younger visitors as did the narrow guage. The Pullman buffet is proving more popular by the day and the appetising smell of fried bacon was ever present on platform two.

Down the yard a number of activities took place. The LMSCA were welding the floor on the LMS BTK. Work continued on the interior of the LMS breakvan. The DMU Team continued their work on the class 119 with steady progress on its interior and repaired a vacuum seal on the class 117. Maintenance work was also undertaken on the dogfish ballast wagons. The 8F group continued their work with the Henry Ellison boiler and the class 31 received some cosmetic surgery to its cab.

A very satisfactory day.
