Progress Report Saturday 24th November 2012

Dear All,

It was a cold, wet wintery day down at Derbyshire's favourite branch line. During her preparation for service it was found that Iris had a fractured fuel pipe to her heater and the 2-car set was quickly prepared for the 10.20 Duffield service. The lone quick fix fitter expertly dealt with the fault and Iris was able to return to her normal duties at 12.20.

Down the yard the LMSCA concentrated their efforts on the window seals of the BSK. In the shed the 8F group continued the dismantling of Katherine's mechanical stoker. The lone quick fix fitter turned his attentions to a fault with the Bubble car's lights and again his administrations proved successful and the fault is now rectified. Finally up at Duffield the station foreman set about fixing some broken car park fencing.

All the best,

Tom
