A lovely summer day, sunny, warm and pleasant. We entertained a number of steam Driver Experience guests and the sun brought out assorted visitors to the buffet and the station.
Down the yard the sun also brought out the painters and paint brushes were waved in various directions around the railcars, around carriage
roofs and around the class 31, which is now ready to receive its down side decals. General engineering and restoration work also took place courtesy of the LMSCA and an escapee from Marks and Spencer.
Back at the station, the foremen have begun to strip the platform waiting shelter ready for its own major repaint, this is likely to take several weeks but will be much improved once completed.
All the best,
