Progress Saturday 9th July 2011

Dear all,

A warm and sunny day which saw a repeat of good numbers on the passenger trains. We entertained a Golden Wedding Anniversary party who had a ride to Duffield and Ravenstor alongside a full buffet spread laid on by the catering department. We also played host to a small group visiting from Bewdley on the Severn Valley Railway, who were complementary about the enterprise.

Down the yard, a lone LMSCA member continued working towards their aims and the LMS brake van started to receive a new floor. After giving the SVR lads a grand tour, a small (but perfectly formed it says here) DMU team continued with some painting inside 51505. A repair was undertaken on the bubble car guards door.
