We have decided to arrange a working party at the Midland Railway - Butterley on the 22nd/23rd of June to visit our TC Unit. Whilst we are there, our aim will be:
• To undertake a full survey of what work is required on each coach
• Find out what will be the best way to get the tarpaulins on to the vehicles and attached securely
• Carry out some basic work to get the vehicles towards being water tight
We hope that a representative from Butterley's contract restoration arm will meet us there at some point over the weekend to go over the restoration plan with us, and to advise on any extra work we may find.
If anybody wishes to attend for either a day or the whole weekend, please let us know ASAP, and we will try to help with arranging accommodation/transport if necessary. I will be sending out an email nearer the time to those that have advised that they would like to attend to finalise any other details about the visit.
