Progress Thursday 29th June 2017

Dear all,

You would have been forgiven if you had thought it was October with today's weather. Rain and cold! Having said that, a more than satisfactory number of passengers enjoyed today's Blue Timetable.

Down the yard, one portion of the Maintenance Team fitted a gearbox piston seal to one of the gearboxes on the Class 119 which was blowing through and the other team worked on the PW Bubble Car. They are specifically working on the engines at the moment, where many of the components have been sponsored by shareholders. One of the engines had many of the components missing and these have now been fitted including a starter motor, right angle fan drive, injector pump and some misc pipework as well. A test run up will be done off the vehicle before it is fitted. It is very handy doing this kind of work in the luxury of the new shed extension - dry, warm and clean!
