Progress Friday 23rd August 2019

Dear all,

A gorgeously sunny and warm day which saw services handled by 78018. Trains were very well loaded with over 100 on the first train and good numbers thereafter. Thank you to the crews that kept on time and made it run smoothly.

Down the yard, the trains were prepared for the weekend which led to a nice photo of three rodded locos. The Derby Lightweight progressed in the shed too.

This evening sees a private charter with 78018 and I gather Gin is the order of the day along with meals on the train.

Unfortunately one of the components which runs the webcam system has failed and we're awaiting a delivery of a replacement. Apologies for this but we hope to be back up and running soon!
