Ivatt in the garden.

'Twas a beautifully sunny day today, so after our walk I did some emergency maintenance on the garden railway. Some of the solder joints for the wire jumpers linking sections of track were not painted, and were corroding into a white powder. Out with the wire brush, the fibreglass brush, and the paintbrush and the job was soon done.

Of course a test run was essential, so newly-painted 41249 had a few runs up and down the curves by the wall.

41249 lets off steam impatiently while posing for photographs.

41249 coasts down the bank past a Pyrocanthus bush, with a short local train.
