The last day of January 2009 brought a bright and sunny (if not a little cold) day to Wirksworth and there was activity on a number of fronts.
On the narrow gauge, a team was working in preparation of the HMRI visit that is now imminent.
Else where down the yard more progress was made on the Class 119 restoration. A lone member spent the day stripping paint and cleaning pelmets. Also on the DMU front the class 108 trailer 56224 had some more new batteries installed to match those inserted last week.
In the afternoon the DMU team received a consultation on wooden and ceiling matters.
The booking hall fielded the usual enquiries.
