A day to lift the spirits as the sun graced Wirksworth through the day encouraging the many visitors to experience the Wirksworth Bistro hosted by the Pullman Car team.
The main event today was a combination of steam experience and drive diesel day participants with Dave Williams and Matt hosting the steam and John Allsop and Richard hosting the diesel. As ever Evans the Guard rushed between the two. Many pleasant comments received from the participants who seemed quite reluctant to leave us.
Nathan took advantage of the sun to paint, prepare and varnish all available opportunities.
There was much cleaning and tidying for the weekend which is forecast to be quite pleasant.
Some clarifications and corrections are due to the VCT for yesterday's efforts! Apparently, down south, the weather was pleasant enough to allow muck shifting at Hazelwood, rebuilding of a stone wall and levelling. Jebbs Lane foot crossing had its sight lines improved in perfect weather again. Thus the team were doubly blessed.
