Thursday 20th September 2018


I am pleased to report that 62005, our support coach, the co car and the support crew all found there way safely back to Carnforth on Monday.

We have hardly had the best of seasons with the K1 this year but on reflection it has still been worth the effort. Many thanks to everyone involved.

As I said in my last e-mail we aim to wash the boiler out and remove the concrete arch this coming Saturday. We could still do with a bit more help so anyone wanting to be involved would be most welcome - just e-mail me at this address or text/ring on 07964988551.

Now that I have retired I will be spending most of my time working on the K1 this winter. While we will probably settle into set days for working parties I am happy to be there pretty much to suit anyone else's availability so if you want to come over please let me know when and I will do my best to fit in. Notwithstanding this I will try and keep you updated on progress and of when full working parties are scheduled.

There will be much to do across a whole range of skill levels so please come along and join in if you can.
