In the afternoon I thought I'd make myself useful with whatever was going on around the railway. As it happened, most of the steam loco dept members present were giving one of the DMU cars its equivalent of an MOT. Why do various members of the steam loco dept own a DMU you might well ask? Well the answer is to be found on the Cotswold Diesel Railway LTD's website. Anyway, today was the day for car 51405 to receive its equivalent of an MOT. There was plenty to be done. My first task was to take a grease gun to the grease nipples on each of the 3 hinges on every door.... there are hundreds of doors on these things. I've decided that DMU stands for Door Moving Unit.
