Progress Sunday 23rd July 2017

Dear all,

The rain held off to provide another good day in the valley, with many people young and old coming for a ride behind the visiting Jinty. Following the speedy replacement of the two vacuum cylinders yesterday, it was good to see the bar car back on the train. Indeed one couple said that they only purchased tickets to enjoy a drink at the bar!

Down the yard, more stripping out of parts of the RF kitchen car was done and work to begin to reconstruct the air system on Derby Lightweight power car 79018 took place. Needle gunning of the sole bar at the front on the PW Bubble also took place as a follow on from yesterday. A start was also made on trying to trace a pesky fault with the Class 119's saloon lighting which has been around for some time.
