James Piercy, Arthur Jenkins, Malky Simpson and Terry Newman attended Hopetown to demonstrate that the shunter was fit for service. The diesel shunter worked and we ran it over the system. All points were operated.
In the process of doing that we managed to shunt the bogie bolster wagon from its normal resting position on cross over down on to the brake van at the south end of the site. Makes future shunting much easier.
