Monday 22nd cope remedial work by the civils team brought them face to face with a fallen tree, which thankfully had just missed the new Clay Mine Hutch display!  The display had only just been completed before the latest covid restrictions were put in place so the group is thankful for the Civils team taking care of the trunk and branches.

Wednesday saw Caledonian Tank ‘419’ running up the line on a test run pulling coach MK1 BSK 35185. The 419 had been examined by the Boiler Inspector earlier in the week. The Caley engine carried a wreath in memory of Stefan Kay who sadly passed away recently, our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. Pictures courtesy of Iain Gent;
