    I imagine it will be one, or even two, S160s and the dining rake normally is 8 coaches

    DSCF4364.JPG DSCF4367.JPG DSCF4368.JPG DSCF4370.JPG DSCF4372.JPG DSCF4374.JPG DSCF4376.JPG the big project for the beginning of 2019 is to create two extra sidings at Froghall so that coaching stock can be kept there rather than having to bring down each day from Cheddleton. Lots of site clearance work has been done in the last week and storage containers moved. The sidings will be formed from the half mile or so of line left south of Froghall so the big job over the last week has been to undo all the fishplates and unscrew all the chairs - done by MPD with air tools and a class 33. OAPWay had the task of unkeying the rails by hand (about 1000 keys), which has been completed so that the rails can be lifted out followed by chairs and sleepers. Next week and the week after should see them all being put in again.
