Both our Coach restorer groups were hard at work trying to complete
their projects before the June 2nd deadline when our first Afternoon
cream tea train commences.
Our service train was handled by Iris supported by the EVRA shop and
the Pullman Buffet. Iris hauled a brakevan to Duffield for the Derby
Amateur Radio Society who will be transmitting from the brakevan over
the Bank Holiday weekend.
The DMU group completed a shunt to place 55006 in the Maintenance
Facility for replacement head gaskets and varnishing ready for its
visit to the Llangollen DMU gala in June. They also fuelled units ready
for this weekend.
