Progress Thursday 8th September 2016

Dear all,

Another lovely sunny day here which I suspect won't last! The train bobbled up and down happily with mostly holiday makers on board.

The Permanent Way gang have now got to the stage where the plain line part of the slip replacement project is now passable although more work has to be done. This has turned out to be a rather big task.

The pre-departure examination on Iris was completed and a start made on cleaning the interior. The exterior is tomorrow's job. Another team set about replacing a broken stop solenoid arm on 50170 also. Faraday had more needle gunning and sanding work done on the roof.

Derek was working in the BSK to get the compartments back together but I suspect it was rather too warm.
