What's happened to spring? A cold day down at Derbyshire's favourite branch line meant modest passenger numbers. At Wirksworth we welcomed a group of new volunteers who were introduced to the railway and successfully undertook their Personal Track Safety and Fire Safety training. The model railway enthusiasts wired some point motors and have expressed a warm invitation for anyone who might like to help them with their endeavours.
Down the yard the 8F group huffed and puffed as they continued their boiler restoration. The class 31 received some attention and the DMU team continued their rapid progress with the class 119 interior and work continued on the Bubble Car's exterior.
All the best,
