Progress Friday 28th July 2017

Dear all,
Another wet and miserable day but it didn't deter the passengers and we had quite a reasonable day on the train. The converted wheelchair space in Iris came in to it's own today with several passengers making use of it. It was also good to see another day of strong retail performance.
The Maintenance Team continued working on Barry the PWay Bubble which was taken to the car park for fitting of an overhauled gearbox. Photo attached. It might not be looking at it's most beautiful, wearing weather sheeting, but lots of progress has been made in the background sourcing and overhauling parts sponsored under the Bubble Appeal by our shareholders and the Aviva Community Fund grant. Lots of bodywork, most of it hidden under the panels, has also been undertaken. This afternoon, with the heavens open, the team retreated to the luxury of the new shed to continue working on the Leyland 680 engines which are nearly ready to be fitted, with one receiving an overhauled CAV injector pump.
