Saturday 5th April

A dank and grey day up at Whitrope, brightened somewhat by a procession of vintage cars on a rally that passed the site. A number of tasks were progressed, with Alan and Bill working on the coaches to have the exhibition and buffet coach ready for the new season. Davie was working on various bits of the Fowler that could be needle-gunned then taken indoors to paint. Rod and Duncan worked on the engine and the head was assembled and put back on the engine. Baz and Dave were also on site and got the last three copers in place. We now have a complete platform with copers running to the bottom of the ramp.

Further works are being undertaken during the coming week to progress the bay platform, so if you are free come along as any help would be greatly appreciated.

I will provide some up-dates of the work as it progresses over the next week.



  1. Well done to all, despite the weather.
