Progress Report Saturday 3rd May 2014

Dear All,

We have had glorious weather for day one of our Rock and Rails weekend in association with the Steeple Grange Railway. Our quarry tours proved quite popular and we received good feedback from our guests.

Down the yard the DMU restoration group were busy repairing the roof of 50599 roof, replacing the ceiling panels on 50525 as well as replacing windows on 50253. The LMSCA commenced a clean up operation of the 3rd open in preparation for their stall tomorrow and work continued on the SO and SK roofs. The 8F group carried on with their work on Cathryn and Tim Oaks et al were busy reaming holes in the Duke's frame and painting frame steps and axles.

Today's picture is of one of our passengers, Bertie aged 10 who proved a big hit with his fellow visitors and our volunteers alike. Apparently he is very well travelled.

All the best,
