Shunt: D8233 & D5705
Next on the list was to move D8233 from the old siding and in to the void left by the 14. This required the 08 to move everything that was in front of it, once completed D2062 went and fetched the BTH survivor and put it in to it's new home.
The final stint was to fetch the Class 28 which was also being moved from it's mooring of the past 3 years and over to the main through sidings. Once finished we shunted back the large consist on the old siding and put the steam engines back in to the works. Once everything had been screwed down and chocked we called the end of a long day of shunting.
The next working weekend is September 3/4. If you wish to lend a hand please contact Chris Tatton
