Progress Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August 2019

Dear all,

Our Summer Diesel Gala saw weather more common in Autumn but it didn't deter the enthusiasts from enjoying our selection of locomotives on offer, including visiting Class 33 33102 "Sophie". The event ran very well but unfortunately home fleet 33 33103 "Swordfish" developed a fault late yesterday and couldn't operate today. Attached is a photograph of the two 33s operating together when they could. Thank you to everyone who took part in another successful event, it takes a lot of hard work and effort from all involved.

The Derby Lightweight trailer car, which is now up in the sky, had a handbrake warning buzzer fitted and a start was made on overhauling a vacuum cylinder for it.
