Progress Thursday 14th April 2016

Dear all,

It is fair to say that the passenger numbers today were fairly slack, at least until a party of 26 walkers bought singles at Duffield.

The weather wasn't as bad as predicted which enabled Joe and Nathan to finish the glossing of No.3. Apparently it needs a couple of coats of varnish now but if the weather holds out this might get done fairly readily. In the other shed, the BSK was readied for painting and the SO is now in undercoat.

Work progressed on the miniature railway with ash being laid to create a pathway.

The DMU team did an oil change on 51073's No.1 engine following an issue earlier this week with that engine and then reformed the sets afterwards.
