Despite a weather forcast predicting gloom and rain a very pleasant day with PWT progressing well with the blockade at Shottle. Plain line has been removed, the ballast dug out and 38 crossing timbers unloaded ready for laying out tommorow. All chairs and smalls have also been unloaded next to the work site. The weather doesn't bode well for the morrow but we shall see.
Enquiries for a further 3 days of testing work means our already busy railway is bursting at the seams with not enough days in the week to satisfy all our different business interests with driver experience days, testing work, passenger services, charter work midweek and days for repairs all clamouring for a place on the calender.This week and next are booked solid - no more room at the Inn.
