Hi all

Although sunny there was still that chilly wind but good passenger numbers were recorded on the four train Duffield service worked by our hybrid 119/108 two car DMU        The steam team repaired a leaking injector valve on Henry Ellison and brakeblocks were fitted to Cathryn
The Pway team continued fish plate greasing south of Shottle and track patrols completed on all lines.
Final repairs were made to the EP valves and air system on bubble car 55006 and a test up the Incline now sees this vehicle back in traffic. It is just being washed so one of the owners who has just retired can have her retirement party on 55006 tomorrow. How close was that !!

All for now

Mike
