Progress Saturday 9th March 2013

Dear All,

More wintery weather this Saturday ensured the Pullman Buffet's home made mushroom soup was a popular menu choice with our guests. We welcomed our first 'day with the driver' guest who had travelled from County Armagh, Northern Ireland and thoroughly enjoyed his day with us.

Down the yard a number of volunteers had braved the cold to work on their respective projects. The LMSCA were busy preparing the 3rd open for varnishing, designing a brake gasket for the BSK, welding on the SK and attending to a vacuum cylinder problem on the CK. The 8F group were working on Cathrine's tubes and the DST were busy painting Henry Ellison and the commemorative plaques were attached to ensure they fitted before being removed in readiness for the locomotive's naming ceremony.

The DMU restauration team attended to a number of tasks including fixing a vacuum leak in the class 119's DSD.

All the best,
