A very lovely sunny and warm autumn day: we pottered up and down the valley with the service trains and the public wandered happily around the platforms inspecting our quality retail products as well as our rampant begonias.
In several places some painting went on, and the Duty Conscript was introduced to the wire brush in connection with the CHPR water carrier.
Down the yard, the DMU team appeared to be having a seating day, and the class 108 received a large number of "new to us" seats and so this unit has very nearly had completely replaced upholstery in the passenger area: with a little further tarting up it will no doubt be a credit to us, particularly once we've washed the antimacassars.
In the shed the main thrust of the day was the construction of the down side staging, which will enable our talented fitters to put on a show of their own, as if they don't spend enough time singing as it is.
All the best,
