Progress Report Sunday the 24th of August 2014

Dear all, 

Apologies for the slight delay in getting you your daily fix of excitement from our internationally famous railway, this was due to a kink in my computer. Anyway we had a lovely sunny day in which our many passengers and visitors were able to enjoy our fine line and its many scenic cows.

Down the yard, the Austerity Team continued their long-running restoration programme with further scraping and painting. Paint also found its way on to the DMU team support coach, together with some welding and stores filing. The much sought-after BR tartan paint has been rediscovered and put on ebay ready for the Scots to repaint their post boxes with. JCB Purves managed to get some paint onto the platform 2 fence, as well as some other places, and the DMU team dealt with a duff door on 55006.

All the best,
