Today started with torrential rain but it didn't deter the crew and their guests for a Bronze Drive a Diesel Day. Firstly, the two car Metro-Cammell DMU was sampled before trying their hand with the Class 31 after lunch.
Team Tannery continued work on the new Booking Office at Wirksworth with good progress being made on the framework for what will be the front sales desk. Progress was also made on the BSK with one man turning into his own courier and the other continuing inside.
We saw the arrival of Class 33 103 "Swordfish" today from Nemesis Rail at Burton. It is on a season-long loan and will assist greatly with our tea train operations on Tuesdays.
