Yup looks like she is bringing them a Bowl or Gruel to toughen them up for who knows what? By the way Casey what is her name, she looks hot.

Great pics Casey,I wonder how many of us put our crews through training,good figures and I think maybe just maybe I could modify to western types,where did you locate them as would be interested,thanks,Rio.
The figures are made by Schleich, they are usually sold as parts of sets. However I picked up the five figures which were being sold separately from the sets. Schleich do sets of cowboys which lend themselves to modification.

The driver training is going very well, three drivers have been allocated locomotives where they will be relief drivers. Martina has been her own locomotive “Elise” a Merseysider class engine.
One of the senior drivers Rutger has a part time job as a park ranger. Here he is waiting for the Safari Park Special with Ranger Abel and his dog Cassius:-
