A wet start to the day as the heavens opened with a heavy downpour soaking passengers and staff alike as 55006 worked the Duffield service which still produced a steady stream of passengers .
The Evra shop was open for business as well as the Pullman buffet which provided our passengers with hot snacks and drinks
The steam engine Henry Ellison was out early as we entertained E vras steam driving experience guest and his family which included one of our youngest ever guests at only 14 weeks old with her mum and brother .
Down the yard the only activity was the Dmu group who completed more work and running trials on the engines and exhausts of 50253.
Many thanks to all the crews who ensured the passengers enjoyed their Journey between Wirksworth - Ravenstor and Wirksworth - Duffield .
