Progress Report Sunday 4th February 2019

Hi All,

Another bitterly cold start this morning in the valley which saw our usual contingent of hard worthy souls out in force!

Down the yard, for the Derby Lightweight trailer car, attention has focused on seats, currently a set of reclaimed seat frames are being re-angled evand flat packed to enable fitment through the narrow bodyside doors - Ikea a la EVR perhaps?!

Elsewhere, the B4 exam continued on 33103 'Swordfish' with the oil and filter change completed. Bubble car W55006 was prepared to have the troublesome No.2 end vacuum cylinder changed, hopefully for the final time! Finally, the respective EVRA and LMSCA coach groups were also in force working on their respective projects.

Up at the station, we hosted Marlow Players, who were using the station area and coaching stock for photography and video purposes. I thank those who handled their requirements and needs without a hitch!

All the Best
