Progress Report Friday the 30th of August 2013

Dear all,

A deeply peaceful sunny day here in Wirksworth, with only the gentle throb of the class 117 to disturb the day's tranquillity. Railcar Enterprises spent the day scrubbing the said vehicle and used up the national supply of Tesco's Wash and Wax.

Down the yard, the Third Open was attended to by Smith Enterprises and the LMSCA's close personal friend, and more bits of it re-appear each week.

At both ends of the line, the Station Foremen fixed benches, weeded and mowed the grass in the afternoon sunshine. The steam team attended to L&Y 1300 in preparation for its final weekend of passenger services, amidst the gentle tweeting of the Peak District's bird population.

All the best,
