Progress Tuesday 17th July 2018

Dear all,

A reasonable day on the trains with 33103 "Swordfish" at the helm, fresh back from a trip to Lancashire. An at-capacity tea train boosted things too.

Down the yard, fitters constructed a new work bench. Maintenance work was carried out on the steam fleet ready for the weekend too. Theres always a hive of activity on a Tuesday.

The afternoon shift arrived to look at this pesky power fault with the Class 73 which is preventing it from driving under its own power. Having had the air frame rebuilt and the cab put back together hopefully it won't be too long before it can run. Hopefully for the August gala! Attached is a photo of the cab desk which looks wonderful.
