Saturday 17th August 2013

The weather decided to take a turn for the worse but failed to deter passengers from visiting Derbyshires Friendly Railway.
The 2 car Dmu scooted off down the the line to Duffield with the 10.20  as The bubble car looked after  the Ravenstor service,
The L & Y helped the Lmca test a steam system before running the 12.20 14.20.16.20 services then went engine and brake to Duffield at 1820 with the two driver experiences.
The Dmu team were to be found tinkering with the units and repaired Iris coolant leak, ben has joined the quick fit fitters and was last seen laying down under the Revs taxi
The 8f group were busy assisting Oaks enterprise team on the Dukes Chassis.
The miniature railway was busy with interest  by young and old as the 060 steam tank engine was put through its paces .
> Many thanks to all the staff for their stirling efforts esp Stuart who kept us on time by keeping Gorsey bank gates open for  the steam service.
