Progress Friday 10th March 2017

Dear all,

After the beautiful day yesterday, it was dull and drizzling today but not too cold so that's OK. Today work continued on the body work and repaint of the CK in the shed whilst a start was made on cleaning the interiors of the coach rake that was put together yesterday. The Diesel Weekend is now just a week away so the cleaning and finishing touches before running are being done.

The Station Team were in this morning attending to one or two minor defects on the station including a leak in the Platform 2 shelter and a problem with one of the foot crossing gates. They also did some measuring up so we can get the materials together to replace the top on the 4-wheeled platform trolley. The tarmac on Platform 1 had several hours spent with a pressure washer cleaning up the area after the mud from recent works and moss from a damp last few months had made it look rather messy. It isn't quite finished because time ran out but it does look much better!
