A mixed day weather-wise at Whitrope, grey and wet in the morning, but fairly pleasant and warm in the afternoon. We had our first group booking of the new season today with a visit from a group of retired railway officers. The group had a number of trips in the rail-bus and visited the newly completed exhibition.
Further work was undertaken on the bay platform, with a start made on getting some of the sleepers in place where the track, will leave the current running line.
Tom and Peter worked on the Fowler, installing one of the refurbished sandboxes and getting a second up into the cab, ready for re-fitting.
Ian continues to work on the refit of the Mk1 buffet.
