Another pleasant day helping Santa with his sack at the EVR, with both
trains happily busy, and many thanks to all involved in keeping our
small guests occupied and amused.
Down the yard, the LMSCA carried on with the fitting of doors to the BSK
(BR mark 1 carriage 34625), or more specifically, the adjusting of parts
to enable the doors to fit properly. In the class 119, one team dealt
with stripping the old lino floor of the second class compartment in
readiness for its replacement, another team fitted the charming new
curtains to the first class compartment and a third team researched the
history and operation of pillar drills.
As far as next week is concerned will Booking Hall staff please note
that Santa Trains on Sunday are absolutely full, but that we have space
on both trains (11.15 and 14.15) on Saturday. Will Booking Hall staff
please also note that we can now accept cheques made payable to the
"Ecclesbourne Valley Railway" as well as to "Wyvernrail Plc" for company
All the best,
