Progress Tuesday 14th March 2017

Hi all

With the temperature gradually rising and a little sunshine it obviously affected the passenger numbers on our Tuesday service which was very well loaded
The PWay team continued fish plate greasing south of Shottle.
The steam team eventually fitted Cathryn's right hand crosshead which rests peacefully between the slide bars and what a fight it has been !! The flexible lubrication hoses were cleared of internal obstructions. Barclay Henry Ellison had a steam valve refitted and No3 received general maintenance in preparation for its next steaming
The DMU duo washed the east side of the coaching rake ready for this weekend's Diesel gala and commenced an A exam on railcar W51073.

All for now

Mike
