Progress Friday 11th May 2018
Today we hosted a Bronze Drive a Diesel Experience for three lucky participants, including one gentleman formerly of Old Oak Common who had a memory of driving first generation units from years ago. They all enjoyed a run out on Iris this morning before taking the 33 for a spin this afternoon. They enjoyed an enormous lunch in the station cafe too.
Down the yard a shunt of the shed area was undertaken and the Class 08 had generator contact tips adjusted and replaced where necessary.
We also launched a couple of new on train dining experiences for the summer season which includes Cream Teas on Saturdays and Ploughman's lunches on Sundays. Check out www.e-v-r.com/dining for more details.
I also attach our first poster for the August Diesel Weekend. We are still sorting out of loco line up and it promises to be an exciting event!
