Saturday 9th. This was to be the last working weekend on D8233 for 2006 and with the festive period just round the corner, numbers were understandable low, however those present continued with the radiator tank assembley's restoration, the last tank was prepared and painted and the tank side frames were needle gunned then given a coat of primer.

Sunday 10th. Only a handfull of members present today, and they concentrated on going through and sorting the salestand stock ready for the following weekends attendance in Pudsey. Once done more painting was done on the radiator tanks and side frames.
