Not being remotely interested in the football, I went along on Sunday only to find that pretty much everybody else was. I ploughed a lonely furrow wire brushing old paint off of 3850's frames. I even started on a cab side, but didn't get too far as there are a surprisingly large number of rivets/hand rails etc to negotiate your way around, never mind the fact that with the cab roof missing, it flexes about a fair bit.

And finally, the Wednesday would like to make it known that they have been putting in sterling work. Apparently they shifted 4 JCB bucket loads of Welsh coal dust out of 2807's tender and replaced it with 6 bucket loads of the new Scottish coal, evicted a wasp's nest from the wood store (sooner them than me), tidied up the yard and investigated an issue with one of Foremarke Hall's injectors.
