Progree Tuesday 9th June 2015

Hi all
Another busy Tuesday at Derbyshire's longest Heritage Railway. We ran another successful afternoon cream tea train using three MK1 maroon coaches which certainly looked better than hauled DMUs for the passenger stock.
The PWay had lessons in brick and block constructing the walls on the new fuel point. Another team continued painting the North Shottle ground frame.
The DST split into their usual two  groups fettling No3 and Henry Ellison and moving Catherines restoration forward.
A delivery of reclaimed track and chairs etc was seen arriving from Spondon in the afternoon.
55006 received some more varnish to the West side and both ends by John Allsopp 

                                                               Bye for now
