Progress Sunday 28th May 2017

Dear all,

A reasonable Bank Holiday Sunday with passenger numbers on a par with yesterday. Many families took advantage of the Kids Go Free Weekend to enjoy travelling behind the visiting steam locomotive.

Down the yard, the floor of the new shed extension had the nth coat of paint applied. Iris had a starter motor changed and the step boards painted ahead of her departure to Wales later this week and the Class 31 had a defective controller valve changed to ensure good service on Tuesday's afternoon tea train.

Today's pic shows a group who whipped out a rather luxurious afternoon tea of their own as a picnic to have on the train!
