Testing of LUL works loco continued with trips up the incline light engine and with the class 31 hooked up as a stand in for a test load. Further brake tests were carried out later in the day all ably supervised by Mike and Rob.

LMSCA  again on site making further progress with the interior of the BSK with other members of the team working on the LMS rake.
