Progress Sat 29th May 2010

Evening all,

A wet and miserable day compared to those of late with frequent heavy rain, with some drier interludes. Today was the first day of the three-day Wirksworth Carnival event weekend and passenger numbers were surprisingly reassuring despite the terrible weather conditions. The Narrow Gauge and Model Railway were open and the buffet car proved a welcome place for people to shelter. Today's Day with a Driver and his guests had a good time even with the weather.

The SK was given a good mopping out after the use it had in the week and cleaning of the luggage racks in the Met-Camm Centre Car continued.

The Carnival continues tomorrow and hopefully it will be a much better day weather-wise.
