Progress Friday 6th March 2020

Dear all,

First thing, probably just after dawn had cracked, 08704 left for Leeds to visit the wheel lathe so that we can operate it at the Diesel Gala next month. It had certainly left by the time I arrived.

We hosted our first Drive a Diesel experience of the season today with participants first trying their hand on the DMU before taking the Class 31 for a spin after lunch. Thank you to Lewis and to Graham for hosting our guests.

The Maintenance Team dropped a defective vacuum cylinder off BSK 34625 ready to overhaul it as coach examinations ahead of the season continue.
