Progress Report Sunday 17th February 2019

Hi all,

A steadier day in the valley for our first operating Sunday of the season with M79900 'Iris' doing the honors, my thanks go to the Catering, Booking Offices and Train Crew for handling our passengers amicably as always!

Down the yard, repairs were being undertaken on the EVRA BSK and further interior restoration work on the Derby Lightweight also continuing a pace. Box van 'Johnny' received a more detailed underframe examination ahead of the Multiple Memories Railcar weekend which found no real issues that couldn't be swiftly rectified. Finally, W55006's No.2 end bogie was re-assembled after the recent vacuum cylinder change and tested once more, and to much relief, the cylinder worked and continued working correctly after many subsequent tests.

John and Ben also moved the WiFi receiver on the Conference Room as there appears to have been a building built between it and the station!

That's all for now!
