Progress Wednesday 14th May 2014

Dear all,

A glorious day in the Gem of the Peak with the peace only broken by the telephone continuously ringing. Actually, that's not quite true. The phone did indeed ring quite alot but the buffet was pretty busy for most of the day too.

The Pway team worked on the new pointwork when not spending several hours talking to visitors about the intricacies of rail.

Down at the engineerium, work pushed along on Iris and 50253. Having been sanded yesterday, Iris received 2 pack undercoat to the No.2 side and gloss to the roof. But because the paint was already flowing, 50253 was receiving the same treatment on the No.1 side.

A good day.
