Good evening all and welcome to the Sunday night update,
What a cracker of a day we had today,
The narrow gauge was a hive of activity as the guys continued rebuilding little Sylvia the simplex, with the enging and box bolted in the levers and controls were refitted along with cab components
which help support the control rods etc, she is well on the way to completion and we cant wait to see her on the track.
The fire assembly point sign that was replaced on wednesday was put in the ground today next to the spot the old one occupied, it looks nice and fresh and fingers crossed it lasts a while.
the banana van moved forward again today with the insulation refitted to the left side and some temp plastic sheeting added to keep it in place and stop the guys going home itchy as it is old school glass fibre not the new stuff.
No17 saw the left side of the water tank receive some more attention thanke to pete who did his usual sterling work getting the lettering second coated and adding the Number also.
Did you know we are a Dog friendly railway and are happy to carry well behaved dogs who even get their own ticket, all we ask is they stay off the seats.
Our running season is almost at an end with only two Sundays remaining, our station shop is still well stocked with lots of items to choose from so if you see anything that takes your fancy stop by and see us, it saves our poor shop keeper having to pack it up at the end of the season :)
And we leave you tonight with a host of pics from todays goings on, thanks again for following us and we will see you next Sunday for another running day, oh and dont forget we have something planned for our last day of the season Oct 3rd so put it in your diary and come see whats going on at the shed.
Cheers, The Shed 47 Team.
