Progress Thursday 20th August 2015

 Hi all
 
A busy Thursday on Derbyshire's longest Preserved Railway. 55006 covered the service train to Duffield but as the Commercial Manager stated everybody was a little cosy !!  Perhaps we should have provided two railcars, but predicting the correct vehicles on a daily basis is not an exact science but important as it forms one of the main costs of running the Railway
The EVRA SK passed its vacuum test and was placed in the formation so we now have a rake of four maroon MK 1's
The DMU group formed the all green three car Met Camm set  for their Annual fish and chip evening Saturday, even though 50253 requires its  final gloss paint. 50253 has not run in multiple for over six years.
 
 
Bye for now
