Whitrope 11th of October

A mainly pleasant sunny day at Whitrope, with just a couple of showers. A reasonable number of volunteers allowed a number of tasks to be undertaken.

Some pw work was done on the point-work, whilst Peter was progressing a number of drainage projects. Tom continues to refurbish the pipework for the Fowler. The opportunity was taken whilst there were plenty of people on site to get the front cowling for the Fowler out of storage and re-fit it to the engine. This helps makes the locomotive much more watertight with winter fast approaching.

Baz and Craig started work on the old Mk1 coach, applying some paint to the outside with the aim of making more aesthetically pleasing. The day also saw a good number of visitors.
