Progress Saturday 14th March 2014.

Hi All
Today having a prebooked party of 17 we decided to use a Two
Car DMU including our Award Winning 119 which used to work the Reading
to Gatwick Airport Service. We made the correct decision as two
services had 68 and 87 passengers.The highest numbers this Year.
One of our Barclays, Henry Ellison was working on the Incline
with Guards training Brake Van handling which gave our passengers some
extra entertainment.
The LMSCA continued working late to ensure our first mobile
catering Vehicle is ready for the first Afternoon Cream Tea Train.
The 8F Group continued with preparatory boiler work on
theDuke.
The DMU team replaced Batteries on the Centre Car,moved 50253
forward in its restoration and commenced painting the Pway Bubble Roof
in primer.

All the best

Mike Evans
