Progress Tuesday 20th October 2015

Hi all
A coach party  of Senior citizens from Doncaster helped to swell our passenger numbers on which turned out to be a warm afternoon
The usual DST continued painting Kathryns frames and fettling axleboxes and cleaning other parts ready for fitting at a later date. Over in the steam shed another group continued winterising the Barclays and tidying up the surrounding area
The PWay team commenced lifting the old midland track on line 3 to extend the Gorsey Bank testing cant and increase to 200 mm to conform to the new 1530 testing regulations. Track patrols we also completed
The DMU duo commenced tidying the site and washing the 119 railcar ready for Friday's visitor but someone being very particular decided it needed polishing to remove water marks. I wonder who that was !!
All for now
Mike Evans
