A most frustrating day as our steam engine, No3, failed at the last moment after our guests had arrived. Much grovelling and apologies endeavoured to rescue the situation but I have invited the steam team to consider how we might deliver what is promised.
Nonetheless, progress was made with the shore based lighting for the Pullman Second Open and various folk were delivering parts of the Wirksworth Festival to the Training Room and Second Open.
Despite our set backs the Pullman Buffet Car and Booking Hall benefited from the foot fall through the day.
Quite a remarkable happening was the fitting of a carpet in the Class 119 and many thanks to Leigh for supplying the accompanying photo.
