The CFR's new deluxe passenger Pullman coaches have now entered service. Sir Hanney collects the coaching stock from the main line loop before taking them round to the station. At St.Bernards, Tracey takes over from Sir Hanney and carries the fully loaded train to the holt. Lady Vandeleur was due to take over here however due to the loco failure, Balham was called in to take the service. The end of the day saw a Double header with Sir Hanney and Tracey.
Lady Vandeleur and Sir Hanney have the job of taking the local passenger service from St.Bernards station to Priory Heights via Priory village. At Priory Heights, two boxcars are being collected for the journey back. This video shows the new teak coaches being used on their first day in service on the CFR.

The St. Bernard's station reconstruction is right in the middle of completion however the build is 5 day behind schedule. All engines available are being used but with the big work order, Safety, general maintenance and care have been effected. Can it be pulled off with the grand opening date set for just 4 days time or will the strain of the work order put this project in to dangerous and risky situation? Find out next time on CFR's End of the Line.
