Progress Sunday 5th February 2017

Dear all,

The final quiet Sunday before trains start running next weekend saw lots of progress down the yard.

The steam team were working to prepare Henry Ellison for service; returning components to the loco which have been off for servicing.

The Diesel lot had a good day, with the oil filters being removed from Faraday to try and identify them. If some spares can be sourced they will do an oil change soon. Over on the pit, Class 101 M51188 had a water pump changed in number No1 engine and the door hinge repair on Class 108 E53599 was completed and passed fit for use. That's two vehicles ready for service. A start was then made on making a heater serviceable for 50170. In the shed, the PW bubble had some gloss applied to the front which will enable the cab windows to be fitted.
