Progress Report Saturday 21st June 2014

Dear All,

What a glorious day here at the gem of the Peak District and an excellent start to our diesel locomotive hauled weekend with very satisfactory visitor numbers. The narrow gauge and model railways were open and proved popular with our younger visitors. Down the yard worked continued on Iris with her dome being painted and 50253's TPWS had further attention. The 8F group and Oakes Enterprises worked on the Duke's frame and the booking office was kept busy dealing with a number of Station Master Luncheon and Driver Apprentice bookings. The Pullman Buffet dealt with a continuous stream of customers throughout the day.

Todays photographs are of a group of enthusiasts from the Grantham Railway Society admiring the restoration skills of Tim Oakes et al and the Class 31 looking rather resplendent in the early morning Wirksworth sun.

All the best,
