Open Day 2nd September

A sunny day saw a regular succession of visitors during the day. The opportunity was taken later in the day to start up the six working locomotives in readiness for the NGRS visit later this month.

Meanwhile the maintenance team cleaned out the building gutters, the drains having been cleaned the previous week.

Wagon painting continues with the bolster wagon nearly finished, the drop side wagon awaiting its woodwork, and the centre ballast wagon partially painted. Meanwhile, Bullfinch is now resplendent after the minor overhaul and repaint.

Maintenance Day 15th July

A change of plan for the day when we were moving a wagon to have its couplings welded and the flat crossing outside the shed decided to collapse. A temporary repair was undertaken, as the line is due for replacement as part of the yard track replacement work this winter.

The first photograph shows the crossing in the background in 1989 with the line continuing in front of the caravan. That line has been removed, so the crossing was redundant. An easy-turnout provides access to the exhibition hall. The second and third photographs show the replacement.

A big thank you to all the youngsters who attended our Young Persons Experience Day, and to top it off 'Bullfinch' which has recently been having work done to her will return to service at our open weekend (4th and 5th) in August.

Maintenance Day 24th June

For many years, two of our locomotives have been stored on a panel of track in our shed. Last year we installed a point to gain access, and we have now installed a temporary connection. Once the locomotives have been moved, the track will be relaid properly as an additional storage road.

Over in the workshop, the repaint of the Hudson Hunslet is approaching completion.
