Progress Report Saturday 8th November 2014

Dear All,

A very wet day down at Derbyshire's favourite branch line but our three Duffield services still achieved good passenger loadings. Today's planned LMSCA coach delivery from north of the border has been postponed for a couple of weeks for reasons out of our control. It was good to welcome 'Vince the Elder's' daughters who visited us to donate some of their dad's tools and PPE.

Down the yard the LMSCA focussed their efforts preparing the interior of the T.O. for further work. The DMU team removed the seats of 50253 and the 8F group plied their skills with 'the Duke'. The Buffet staff were out in full force catering to the needs of 32 Amazon Customers who, despite the weather, were most complimentary about their visit.

Finally, the booking hall dealt with various Santa related activities and the Association held their Annual General Meeting in the Red Lion Hotel this afternoon which was well supported.

All the best,

Tom
