Progress Report Saturday 22nd December 2012

Dear All,

The inclement weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the Santa Special team who looked after our visitors with their usual good charm and expertise. I have attached a photograph of the crossing at Gorsey Bank which captures today's conditions.

Down the yard the LMSCA were in attendance replacing doors on the BSK. Members of the 8F group continued their endeavours in the shed with the automatic coal feed and John A. continued painting the the driver's cabs in the bubble car. The DMU restoration team were out in force today as their restoration of the class 119 gains momentum. The interior team continued preparing the floor for the fitting of new linoleum tomorrow and mounted the original mirrors in the passenger compartment. The external team have now connected both alternators and have fitted the air tanks.

Compliments of the season,

Tom
