Q6 20 July 2022

Because of the forecast heatwave last Tuesday, the planned working party was postponed until the Wednesday, when it was a fine warm day, much more suitable for working. Bill Dobson, Nigel Hall, Steve Hyman were present, along with Ian Pearson until lunch time, when he had to go for a physio appointment at Redcar.

Not a lot to report on the Q6 this week except for the removal of the atomiser steam pipes which Steve and Ian moved from the MPD to Deviation Shed. They are stored at the moment near the stove. The Q6 is available for traffic, but all steam operation has currently been withdrawn by the Railway because of the high temperatures and the extreme fire risk.
