Saturday saw us host a High Speed Train (HST) special from Derby to Pickering. In honour of this we brought one of the 125mph speed signs out of retirement, and set it up on the lineside. The crew on board thought this was great and many photos were taken of it.
The marquee and bar tent have been erected ready for the 60’s ‘Elvisham’ event next weekend. The grass had to be cut yet again – it seems to be growing awfully fast at present. Strimming has also been carried out around the station.
The NER van on the dock now sports its top coat, following an undercoat on Saturday; as does the old NER coach end seat. The NER van body has had some more corner brackets refitted, further bolts inserted into other brackets where required and a small area of poor boarding ‘invisibly mended’.
Initial preparation work for this years ‘Secret Weapon’ has begun, with more to come.
The wagon turntable parts now sport black bitumen paint, bringing the installation date ever closer.
Weighbridge Teas had a good weekend and, in between serving all our visitors, have been planning the food orders for next weekend. Both the Tea Hut and Weighbridge Teas will be open, together with the Bar Tent serving beer and cider.
