We were greeted this morning with some mindless vandalism on platform 3 with broken glass scattered over the platform together with discarded alcohol cans and there was also evidence of an unsuccessful attempt to gain access to 50170. Todays early morning weather was cold and miserable which did have an impact upon visitor numbers for the first Duffield service but as the weather improved we enjoyed much better passenger numbers.
Down the yard the LMSCA gathered for their Annual General Meeting and work continued on the Duke of which Tim will enlighten us in a separate update. Todays service was supported by the EVRA shop, Booking office staff and Wirksworth Station Cafe and a mention must go to the train crew who coped admirably with wet leaves and slippy rails.
All the best, Tom
