Another glorious weekend of sun, albeit a bit windy on Sunday.

The blue milk tanker has had its second coat of undercoat, followed by 2 topcoats, applied to both sides.  Following this today the west – public – side has had its ‘EXPRESS DAIRY’ lettering applied, the latter easy to say but harder to set out and paint.  We also had to cope with a minor shunt in between coats on Saturday as the Wagon Group’s Palvan was retrieved for movement onto Pickering.  This is to allow the brake gear to be overhauled, hopefully in time for the autumn gala.

In the Yard, the new large doors have been fitted to the side of the container.  The door furniture is still to be fitted, along with other minor fittings.

In the toilet van, fitting of the skirtings, architrave and boxing in of the pipework continues, so the end is definitely in sight.  The flagpole has had a good sand and a first coat of white gloss.

Weeding and tidying up of the roadside outside the cottage, plus the path to the cottage front door, continues, as does weeding of the platform beds.  The roses are coming out now so there should be a superb show for the next few weeks.  Grass cutting continues everywhere….

Weighbridge Teas have had a relatively quiet weekend, possibly due to the Armed Services event in Scarborough.  We did have a flypast of a Dakota today and the Red Arrows yesterday, who also obliged with red, white, and blue smoke as well!
