Progress Tuesday 15th March 2016

Hi all

Although the sun shone there was a bitterly cold wind. Spring is not
yet with us.
Our service train was not well patronised but an educational visit of
50 schoolchildren helped saved the day
The cold wind didn't stop the PWay team continue changing sleepers and
fishplate greasing between Hazlewood and Duffield. They also marked
rotten sleepers for changing on the next stretch
The steam team rectified the steaming problems with No 3 and fitted the
newly machined slidebars to Kathryn
The usual Tuesday DMU duo finalised the A Exam on Gloucester 51073 and
sourced a replacement radiator for Met Camm 50253 which has developed a
small leak

All for now
