Saturday 18th May

After a week of wall to wall sunshine it was a miserable day at Whitrope. The volunteers on site were somewhat restricted in what could be done due to the wet conditions.

The main task for the day was to shunt the stock from off the running line back into the stock siding. It was a good chance for the drivers to get use to Pluto and learn some of her characteristics. The wet weather also meant that we had one of the rare opportunities at Whitrope to see how Pluto handled on the wet rails!! The shunt proceeded as planned with no issues, although all involved were fairly damp by the end of the day.

Elsewhere on site the volunteers were forced to undertake tasks indoors as the afternoon turned very wet.
