Progress Tuesday 26th January 2016

Hi all

A usual busy Tuesday with most groups sporting  a good number of volunteers even though the weather was patchy rain
The Pway team replaced twenty sleepers today which is a record for this particular project
The new booking office received some furniture donated from Stuart Walker's firm in Essex !!  Outside the other half of the steam team assisted laying the stone for the tarmac base on the ramp and area left by mess room
We hosted two Test track customers, Clayton Engineering who instructed their customers on the new loco's driving controls and Network Rail who continued to put their RRV through it's paces running between Wirksworth and Duffield
The other steam team members continued with Kathryn's footplate renewal and parts to connect their cylinders

All for now
