Progress Tuesday 8th November 2016

Hi all

Our three trip service train today was handled by single unit 55006 and good numbers were recorded for this time of year. It was supported by the EVRA shop and Pullman Buffet
Barclay Cathryn received its second set of side rods but was not completed without much grunting and groaning !! I make it sound easier than it was
The other half of steam winterised Henry Ellison by lagging the vulnerable parts and No3 had its water drained
The DMU duo also winterised most of the units by checking the antifreeze content of the coolant to ensure the strength would meet the colder temperatures
The PWay team recovered the redundant material from the ballast dock and completed the platform legs for Shottle

All for now

Mike
