Progress Tuesday 4th July 2917

Hi all

The service train today was hauled by our class 33  and the tea train was fully booked plus a coach party of 40 who travelled from Duffield to Wirksworth
The Pway team continued with sleeper changing on the outskirts of Duffield
Down in the yard the DMU duo completed an A exam on railcar 53599 which had completed over 2000 miles  whilst the steam group cleaned all three steam engines inside and out which were then serviced and prepared for their next turn of duty. The ash from the Jinty was emptied and the coal supply was stacked ready for use. In the other shed Cathryn's valve gear was refitted and improved, the window glasses were fitted and the inner frame and wheels were painted. Paul made a mechanism that would activate the lubricator via the motion.
Work was started on repainting the courier van in platform 3 where any loose paint and dirt was removed.

All for now

Mike
