Below: Our new steam engineer Stuart Hines has started work and is seen here with Rambler enjoying the newly surfaced road around the western part of the site.
Below: Rambler and newly restored T3 ‘Whitby Jet’.
Below: Shaun has completed the deck boards for the gallopers and these are now being painted in readiness for its re-erection in the next two months.
Below: Work has re-started on the colliery railway track renewal, with sleepers being changed and the formation being prepared for extension work in an eastward direction along the old formation, which was prepared last year.
Below: Shaun has removed the roof of the B Type bus and will shortly start its replacement. We are looking at repainting the bus into the early (blue/primrose) Newcastle livery (circa 1912) – rather more appropriate than the London General livery carried at present!
