This Saturday saw the railway again welcome trainees from RAF Cosford to work alongside our volunteers. A lot of hard work was done, with two panels of mainline track spot re-sleepered and an extra 30ft of siding installed. Some trainees had a go at driving our industrial diesel 'Jammo' under supervision, and a great time was had by all. Many thanks to the trainees for all their help, and we look forward to working closely with RAF Cosford in the future.
Sunday was a running day with the Class 108 DMU. Before anything started though, we all met in the cafe for a cooked breakfast. Lovely. After that, most of the volunteers were involved with running the trains and looking after our passengers for the rest of the day. Other jobs took place though, with some concrete sleepers and rail moved and organised so that it can be moved to the headshunt later this week. More painting of signals and sign also took place on the shed and work continued on cleaning and repairing the railways seats and benches. The fruits of these efforts can now be seen at the café, and on the platform at Spring Village.
