Saturday 25th May

A good number of volunteers on site undertook a range of tasks as several projects were progressed. Unfortunately after lunch the weather again curtailed some of the work.

The first task for the locomotive department was to finish shunting the stock so the running line was clear for Pluto and the brake van to have access to the main running line. Once the stock was shunted driver training was undertaken with Pluto and the brake van.

Further site tidying up was carried out unfortunately some painting tasks had to be abandoned due to the rain. In the exhibition coach Bill and Alan were working on an attraction for younger visitors, a large wooden jigsaw.

Work progressed on the signal with the wire run and connected to the signal arm. A little bit of work remains to complete the signal run at the top of the gantry and then the connection needs to be made with the balance arms. Hopefully if the weather is better this will be completed next week.

Next week is a running weekend, so please pop up and have a ride behind the newest locomotive to join our working fleet at Whitrope.
