Progress Tuesday 15th November 2016

Hi all

Our single unit railcar W55006 handled the three train service today and the renewed warm weather kept the passenger numbers up for this time of year
I always seem to forget Fred and Iris who give our mess room a deep clean and today planted bulbs in the Wirksworth tubs to give the station some colour next spring
The steam teams gave Barclay No 3 a boiler wash out and fitted the axle box keeps to Cathryn
The Pway team took the works train to Shottle early this morning loaded with all the materials to commence the building of the new shuttle platform
The DMU team of three today completed the lengthy B exam on Met Camm 50170 ( Santas Grotto ) and began the task of ensuring the heaters worked on the Centre car

All for now

Mike
