Progress Friday 19th August 2016

Dear all,

A damp and miserable day with heavy rain at times, which is quite a contrast to the nice weather we've enjoyed for a couple of weeks. This did lead to only a handful of volunteers being on site. We hosted a Drive a Diesel experience today utilising, first LJ Breeze to shunt out the DMU which went to Duffield in the morning and then the Class 33 this afternoon. Extra thanks to Eric and Helen in the buffet who had a few extra surprise guests for lunch at short notice.

The Station Team did their usual weekly check round and installed a new length of work top in to the mess room. They needed a nice job inside!

The apprentice finished his cleaning job on Iris and also moved some components to the stores. He then watered the coaching stock for tomorrow.

Derek and Dan were also here trying to keep dry.
