A very sad day indeed to hear of the death of Peter Taylor, a railway man to the core whose enthusiasm for the Wirksworth branch knew no bounds.His unassuming manner and modesty belies the fact that his generosity was the financial cornerstone behind the opening of the railway to Idridgehay and again his confidence in Wyvern Rail along with EVRA to complete the task is another example of his belief that he, and we, were doing the right thing. In a world where greed, violence,lies and deception seem to be the order of the day it is indeed a pleasure to have known Peter Taylor and I am sure he would wish us to carry on regardless so here are todays doings.
P Way managed 12 sleepers today and whilst the carpark was empty coal was transported to the loco shed with Komatsu. The Land rover has been recovered to Wirksworth for use with 1530 test customers later in the week.
Rodney has been busy at Duffield painting and weeding.
VCT attended Holloway road for some brash and weed clearance with further work at Idridgehay later in the day.
The buffet was open but had a quiet day.
R.I.P. Peter Taylor.
The meekest of men.
The most modest of men.
The greatest of men.
