Hi All
The second day of our Mixed Traffic Weekend saw the Class 31
redeem itself covering all four Service runs to Duffield.EVRA had their
first two hour steam experience ably hosted by John Evans.
Today was busier than yesterday in Financial terms which is
not quite the norm with our services not connecting at Duffield on a
Sunday.The Pullman Buffet sold out except for one sandwich and the
Booking Office Shop needs some more stock !!
The DMU Team fitted the painted seat frames in the main
compartment of 50253,tried to remedy the fault on 50599's final drive
electrical indications and applied more paint to the PWay Bubble roof.
I would like to thank all the staff who covered essential
duties at last minute.A personal thanks to a volunteer from Essex who
stayed overnight in a hotel and covered Gorsey Bank Gates today on
every run making the Journey easier for Traincrew and passengers.
A final note.A volunteer said yesterday the Railway seems
to have a Buzz with all its new activites.Lets hope he is right

Bye for now

Mike Evans
