Progress Report Saturday 12th March 2016

Day one of our Mixed Traffic Weekend proved to be our most successful yet. Our main line diesel locomotives were certainly a hit with our visitors with consistently packed trains on all Wirksworth to Duffield services. The Pullman Buffett had a very busy day with their new 'All Day Breakfast' menu seeming very popular. As well as catering for the crowds of diesel enthusiast, the team still found the resources to provide afternoon tea to a party of guests. Today's train services were supported by the EVRA Shop, Model and Narrow Gauge railways.

Thanks go to all the train crews and operational staff who's professionalism ensured that the day was an unqualified success. Also a special mention to the steam crews who hosted a Footplate Experience before providing a scheduled passenger service to Ravenstor. Due to the sheer number of visitors the crew had to provide many additional services and my personal thanks to them for their dedication and hard work.

Roll on tomorrow.
