Progress Sunday 17th September 2017

Dear all,

Trains ran today to the Blue Timetable with the Royal Railcar doing the honours. A coach party enjoyed a ride too with a prebooked afternoon tea in the Pullman. Not a bad day in all, with the train acting as the taxi back to Duffield for the University of Birmingham students too.

Down the yard, the PW tidied up after the visit of the students and work continued on the Derby Lightweight power car. Also being restored is stalwart shunter Faraday. It has had a new cab sheet welded on and now it is being filled and primed (photo attached).
