Progress Report Sunday the 8th of June 2014

Dear all,

A rather pleasant sunny day with a short rainy moment during the afternoon. We entertained a reasonable number of passengers and lunch guests as well as a "Driver's Apprentice", which is rather like a sorcerers apprentice but without the music and pink elephants.

Down the yard, the DMU team strove to scrape and paint assorted seat
frames from 50253, as well as giving unit 50170 its routine examination.

Back at the station some further gravelling went on around the Clochemerles, the wideway got a mowing, the station approach got some more potholes filled and the Marks and Spencer Synchronised Singing Team fixed some gates and other structures. The Duty Conscript was given some fence painting along platform 1 and this can best be admired from the back.

All the best,
Anton
