Another quiet day at Wirksworth but sunny for once! The lack of volunteers and the sunny weather meant it was a perfect day to rearrange vehicles down the yard to enable projects to continue.
The biggest progress today came in the buffet which is having a little mini refit. A new longitudinal counter has been built and some recently acquired catering display equipment has arrived. The majority of seating out of the buffet car itself has been removed and all seating will now be in the adjacent coach. This new layout not only allows a greater range of products, it also will hopefully speed up service reducing queues at busy times. It'll be open for business again on the 17th February when the trains start running.
We welcomed a refurbished tamper which will be on test with us next week.
