A very wet day with driving rain throughout which saw our Day with a Driver and Drive a Diesel experiences get under way for the first time in 2011. Guests all enjoyed themselves, including the light lunch provided in the buffet. Despite the weather, some ordinary passengers were carried to Idridgehay as well.
The DMU team proceeded with changing the seats in Iris, a task started last week. This difficult job is necessary to free up enough cushions to complete the Met-Camm centre car. Half the vehicle has been completed so far.
The 8F group were in attendance, as well as the LMSCA who are hard at it preparing their coach for the opening.
