A long day dry day with periods of long sunshine helped the first day of the May Bank Holiday event weekend get into full swing.
Services to Idridgehay and Ravenstor ran all day with reasonable loadings and an extra shuttle to Ravenstor was ran for the party of walkers on the "Rail and Quarries of Wirksworth" guided walk. There were two guests driving a diesel today and both thoroughly enjoyed their time shunting with LJ Breeze before moving onto something bigger like the Class 20.
In the afternoon, Ferrybridge No.3 left shed for more training and preparations were made for a private party this evening.
All in all a good day.
I have been asked by Robin to plead with anybody who might be available tomorrow to fill a guarding turn - please!
