Progress Report Saturday 26th March 2016

Dear All,

Typical bank holiday weather descended upon the metropolis of Wirksworth today but surprisingly we still had a pleasant number of families who came along to partake in our Easter festivities. The Circus and Easter Egg hunt proved very popular with both young and old. Earlier in the day the steam team played host to a local VIP footplate experience and went on to provide the scheduled steam service to Ravenstor. Today's Wirksworth to Duffield service was supported by the EVRA shop, Pullman Buffet, narrow, miniature and model railways. Down the yard the three DMU musketeers undertook a complex shunt to assist the LMSCA and a small number of volunteers continued their work on the Duke.

Grateful thanks go to every one who gave up their bank holiday time to ensure the railway was able to provide a good range of activities for our visitors to enjoy despite the weather. Todays picture shows just that.

All the best,
