Progress Saturday 8th February 2020

Dear all,

It was actually quite a nice day at Wirksworth for the most part, ahead of the wild and windy weather expected on Sunday. With just a week to go before the start of the 2020 season, today featured quite a bit of planning and also the undertaking of medicals for safety critical roles.

In preparation for the season, the Class 33 received an A exam on the maintenance pit and had a few minor lighting issues rectified. It also was seen to have a bodyside scrub up too.

Just behind, in the engineerium, the LMSCA were most delighted with their refurbished bolster for the Brake Third coach and James was seen beavering away at EVRAs SK which is having new steel welded into the crash pillars at the north end of the coach.

Lets hope that Sunday's weather isn't too wild and that the marquee survives ready to host Volunteering Day next Saturday!

Leigh
