Progress Friday 16th June 2017

Dear all,

70 years ago today the LMS ran the last timetabled passenger train to Wirksworth. In commemoration, EVRA members were given the opportunity to ride on our celebratory train. The Lord Lieutenant unveiled a commemorative plaque at Duffield this morning too which marked the occasion. The 150 Years headboard looked great on the front of the engine, although I was too busy to be able to get out of the office to take a photograph unfortunately as we had large numbers of visitors.
