Another day of preparation work for re-opening. Coach no.5 has had a final coat of paint applied to the interior, and the doorway head protectors fitted.

The signal box steps have had their annual application of wood preservative. The box is now in line for repairs to the woodwork and a full repaint.

The passenger train has had a trip around the line to make sure that all is ready for re-opening. The picture shows the trial run in March 2020. However, we were unable to open for the year.

We will find out tomorrow whether this year's opening will be delayed further.

With most volunteers away, only a few jobs were done. Down the line, work continued on remodelling the area around the old tipping dock. The sharp set of points are due to be replaced with a larger radius version which requires some of the cutting side being removed. A chance to use our dump truck for the first time for several years.

A further modification was made to the air brakes to replace the palm couplings in the air lines, which can be difficult to couple, with ordinary quick-snap couplings.

This week's tasks involved further touch-up paintwork on coach no.5, and replacement of the brake hanger springs on coach no.7 (after a search for a dropped part!)

Further progress with coach no.5 this week, with the air brake equipment installed. The coach carries the main reservoir tank to power the brakes, allowing any locomotive to be used with the train.
