Michigan was taken into service today 19 th April and ran trouble free all afternoon. A good crowd turned up for this auspicious occasion – 1800 rides. A number of members had a drive and all were very happy with the performance. No major problems. Two dummy axle boxes fell off and are somewhere round the track – perhaps the golf ball hunters will come across them. I managed to knock a horn off putting the loco back in the carriage shed. Please note it is now clear that when it is put away in the carriage shed, it has to go on the road adjacent to the walkway or it fouls the cross structure of the lift.

Our new driver – we like to get them young. It just shows how easy it is to drive
