Progress Saturday 10th August 2013

Dear all,

The first day of our first DMU event since the opening of the Duffield line. It featured the launch into traffic at 12:20 of Class 119 W51073 after 5 years of restoration from a shell.

Many different combinations were ran during the day, culminating in a busy fish and chip special with all nine cars. Around 150 passengers were there to see the spectacle and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Not only could the guards buzzer be heard regularly during the day, but so could the bell on the till.
