Day one of the Wirksworth Festival saw great numbers of people engulf our car park, using this great facility of ours to visit the town and paying for the privilege. Unfortunately, there were not quite so many through the booking hall with the car park busier than the trains - but this is often the case with Festival weekend and it will be interesting to compare last years figures. The Buffet Car still did reasonably well considering there was a packed refreshments stand inconveniently placed on the grass verge next to our car park entrance.
Elsewhere, repairs continued on 55006 and it is now fit to run again. The LMSCA continued chopping wood to produce seat frames for their TO coach.
