Progress Report Sunday 14th October 2018

Hi all,
A calmer day in comparison to the day previous with fewer obstacles to encounter, although we were blessed with heavy rain for most of the day! Nevertheless the lure of the Wirksworth Model Rail Exhibition enticed the punters some of whom travelled on the train and enjoyed the warmth and delights of the Station Cafe.
Owing to the weather all tasks down the yard were being undertaken in the cover of the maintenance facility with Team TSO sanding the East bodyside and applying a protective undercoat and John applying further coats of paint to the underframe and fuel tank of Faraday.
A relatively steady day given the conditions and I would like to thank everyone for their efforts, particularly Pete Watts who turned in to cover the Third Man turn at very short notice!
All the Best
